CM CARES Religious Scholars Program

For the third year in a row, CM CARES will award up to $250,000 in scholarships to deserving graduate-level religious scholars. Fifty scholarship winners will each receive a $5,000 award that may be used to pay for tuition, fees, books or other costs of attending school during the 2019-20 academic year. We encourage students of all faiths to apply.

To be eligible for this scholarship, a student must:

Be enrolled full-time or part-time* in a graduate or doctorate degree program in theology, ministry, or other religious field of study at an accredited or conditionally accredited** theological seminary, college, or university for the 2019-20 academic year.
Maintain a GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent).
Be committed to entering the practice of full-time ministry in the United States.
Demonstrate personal impact through education, work experience, and volunteerism.
