These scholarships are intended for graduate students preparing to obtain a Master's Degree in order to serve in international ministry or in urban ministry in North America. For each year that a graduated student serves in the field of ministry, 25% of the loan is forgiven. Please visit The Billy Graham Scholarship Program for more information about this loan/scholarship program.
Billy Graham Loan/Scholarships encompass a number of different funding sources and may be named accordingly (Smyth, Wessner, Hermann, etc.). Since these scholarships are actually loan/scholarships (if the conditions of the scholarship are not met, it becomes a loan), students are required to read disclosure information, sign a master promissory note, and complete exit counseling. The master promissory note is available to sign online for all except international students (they will sign a hard copy on campus). Students will be notified when the Master Promissory Note (MPN) is available to sign.
