College! The fun . . . the work . . . the money! Where am I going to get the money? Among the many scholarships that students can apply for is the Race Relations Scholarship Program.
Normally, you must be a member of a CRCNA congregation and plan to go to Calvin Theological Seminary or any of the colleges affiliated with the CRC—Calvin University (Mich.), Dordt University (Iowa), The King’s University (Alta.), Redeemer University (Ont.), Kuyper College (Mich.), and Trinity Christian College (Illinois).
There is one catch though. A scholarship recipient must train for and engage in the ministry of racial reconciliation in church and/or in society.
Our scholarship fund is one of the strategies we employ to develop multiracial leaders.
For Black, Indigenous, or People of Color who are attending (or hoping to attend) one of the schools mentioned above and who wish to be considered for a scholarship from the Office of Race Relations, simply print the document that you need; complete the application, including contacting your financial aid office; and mail to:
The Office of Race Relations
1700 28th Street SE
Grand Rapids, Michigan 49508-1407
You may also fax it to: 616-224-0834
The application deadline is May 31.
You can find instructions and applications (both for NEW and RENEWAL applicants) in the attached pdf files found at the end of this post.
If you would like to support this scholarship fund, please give online now. Churches are also encouraged to hold a special offering on All Nations Heritage Sunday that falls on the first Sunday of October to support this scholarship.
