ABCCR Opportunity Scholarship

The Opportunity Scholarship is awarded by the American Baptist Churches of the Central Region to encourage lifelong learning. The scholarship was first established by the ABC/CR Board of Directors in 2005.

  • A reference form must also be filled out and returned by a pastor or church leader who is not a relative.
  • All forms must be sent to the ABC/CR Scholarship Task Force in care of the Region Office.
  • Decisions on the scholarship are made at the time of the May Region Board of Directors meeting.
  • Scholarships will be awarded to recipients during a worship service in their home church.
  • Applicant must be a member of an American Baptist church in Central Region.
  • There’s no requirement of a particular school to be attended or a particular major to be sought.
