Church Matching Grant

The Church Matching Grant was developed to encourage churches to support students from their congregation who are pursuing a Christian higher education. This grant will be coordinated with other need-based financial aid. Students can be matched up to $500 per year. To qualify, complete the application and submit it to your church official for consideration.

Grant Information

Student Eligibility

Recipients need to reapply for this scholarship annually. Below are additional qualifications that you may want to consider before completing the application:

  • The student must be enrolled full time for the full match. If not enrolled full time, at least half time enrollment is required to receive a prorated match.
  • Students who are U.S. Citizens or permanent residents must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Canadian applicants need to complete the Kuyper Canadian Financial Aid Application. International students will need to complete the Kuyper Statement of Finances form.
  • A minimum of a 2.0 cumulative GPA on a 4.0 scale (Canadian marks are converted to be equivalent to the scale).
  • The program is based on the availability of funds. Reapplication for the Church Matching Grant will be offered for a maximum of four years (bachelor’s degree), two years (associate’s) and one year (certificate).

Church Donation Eligibility

  • The church may not submit funds from wages, internships or gifts from individuals to a specific student for the Church Matching Grant.
  • Only one church check per person. Subsequent checks will be applied to the student’s account without a match.
  • For purposes of this grant, a “church” is understood as a congregation holding weekly services/meetings. Donations from other non-profit organizations will 
not be matched.
