The intent of the scholarship is to help alleviate the financial burden associated with the pursuit of dedicated higher education at Baylor University. It is our desire to reward hard working, and committed students.
Eligible students may apply for a $3,000 scholarship award (or $1,500 if a student is attending Baylor for just one semester). The Student Foundation scholarships are awarded based on both merit and need and are evaluated blindly (without reviewing the student's name or identifying information) by the committee.
Baylor awards several scholarships to incoming freshmen, as well as upperclassmen, who demonstrate commitment to advancing racial equality and diversity. Recipients are awarded a minimum of $5,000 their freshman year, renewable for three additional years. Upperclassmen scholarships are also renewable.
The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship is awarded to students based on merit, service, and need. This application will close on Monday, January 17th at 5:00 PM.
