Apply now for 2017 Bishop Scholar Award
Applications and nominations are now being accepted for the 2017-18 OCU Bishop Scholar Award. The scholarship is awarded to incoming college freshmen who plan to study in OCU’s Wimberly School of Religion and pursue a vocation in United Methodist ministry.
The scholarship is not solely for those called to pulpit ministry. It also has been awarded to students called to youth or children’s ministry, social justice ministry, ecumenical and interfaith ministry, and missions. The funds cover full tuition for four years of undergraduate study at OCU.
Pastors may nominate high school seniors whom they know have expressed a calling to ministry. Students also may apply directly for the award. The entire process is online, and the forms can be found at: www.okcu.edu/bishopscholar. The deadline for submission of all materials is Feb. 1.
