MINISTRY SCHOLARSHIP DEPARTMENT
A Student Ministry Scholarship is typically $1,000 for a full academic year. Renewal scholarships are provided as well.
Who is eligible?
Applicants must be full-time graduate students in a Master of Divinity program in a school or seminary accredited by the Association of Theological Schools in the United States or Canada.
The applicant must
be a citizen of the United States or Canada. A 3.0 GPA or above must be
maintained for all graduate and undergraduate work.
How do I apply?
The 2013 scholarship
application period is now closed. Requests for applications for the 2014-2015
academic year will be accepted in January and February, 2014 only. Please
contact us at that time.
May I qualify for more than one academic year?
IOKDS funds renewal scholarships as well. When a continuing student reapplies, the student receives a new application form to be completed with the addition of an updated resume and an official transcript. The application must be postmarked by March 31 with an official transcript mailed to the director as soon as possible, but no later than mid-June.
We are passionate
about our mission not to be ministered unto but to minister,
Mark 10:45. We serve through six international departments, including
the Student Ministry Scholarship Department. Since the Student Ministry
Scholarship Department was created in 1970 The Kings Daughters and
Sons have given over 1,250 seminary scholarships as we invest in the future
leaders of the Christian church.
Your financial gifts and prayerful support are needed
The church needs gifted leaders! It is a privilege for our members to help the individuals called to spread Christs message of love and redemption. Please click here for more information on supporting IOKDS scholarships or call the headquarters office at 716-357-4951. Personal contributions, memorial gifts or honorariums are so important in continuing the work of this department. Individual donors may make tax-deductible gifts.
FROM STUDENT MINISTRY SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS:
I am grateful for your generous support of students like myself who have heard and accepted Gods call to pursue pastoral ministry. This is certainly a joyous but daunting journey that, I assume, most of us had not been planning on until God was finally able to reach out and grap our attention in one way or another. The fact that there are people like you who enthusiastically support the churchs need for educated leaders, whose learning is only surpassed by their love and passion for the resurrected Christ is a comfort and inspiration. Jared W.
Words are somehow inadequate this morning as I write this note to express my thanks for the continuing support of The Kings Daughters and Sons. My wife and I regularly give thanks for having that which we need. Your scholarship of $1,000 for the new (and final!) seminary year is a major blessing. Thanks to God for using your international community of disciples to support students In His Name. Alan L.
