Scholarships

These scholarships were made to assist students in their pursuit of education at Grace College of Divinity.  The amazing men and women behind these scholarships fulfilled God’s calling on their lives and no doubt heard “well done.”  Now their scholarships can be passed on to others willing to answer the call and not be hindered financially.

Scholarships are awarded to participants that meet the criteria of the program based on a balance of merit and need.

Please note: GCD’s policy states that students may receive 1 funded and 1 unfunded scholarship at a time. Consult with the Scholarship Team to learn more or ask any questions.

Submitting Scholarships

Below are several of the scholarships that GCD offers. 

LifeLong Learner Scholarship

About The Scholarship

For undergraduate students who range from high school graduates taking their first college class to vocational ministers increasing their leadership capacity to grandmothers learning more about their faith, GCD believes passionately in the role that Christian learning can play in Holy Spirit-driven transformation.

We strive to make this transformative experience as affordable as possible to as many as possible.

Furthermore, GCD is fully committed to preparing emerging leaders to change the world. We understand that leaders are people who never stop growing, people who are self-motivated to learn both inside the classroom and outside it.

If you are this type of person, we believe that an investment in you is one that will help change the world.
