Ministry Scholarships

Disciples Home Missions or DHM has several different DHM ministry scholarships for Christian studies available. These ministries scholarships are available to students who intend to become ministers and minister’s wives. In fact, there is specific Christian ministry scholarships available for those who intend to go into specialized ministry as well.

The first DHM Scholarship that you need to be aware of is the Disciple Chaplain’s Scholarship, which is available for first year seminary students. Students who apply for this Christian scholarship for ministry are not required to make a commitment to a chaplain program. The Rowley/Wolfe Ministerial Education Scholarship is also available through the DHM for seminary students.

There are race and gender specific ministry scholarships for Christians available through the DHM as well. If you are an African American, you may be eligible for the African American Scholarship Fund, and the Star Supporter Scholarship is also available for African Americans who intend to become ministers. This particular fund also has a loan program.

The David Tamotsu Kagiwada Memorial Scholarship is available for Asian-American students who are ministerial students. Another ministry scholarship that is available for seminary students of either Asian or Pacific Islander descent is the Soongook Choi Scholarship. This particular Christian scholarship, however, is available for those who are planning ministry in a multi-racial community.

The Katherine J. Schutze Memorial Scholarship is available for female seminary students, and the Michelle Jackson Scholarship is available for African-American women who seek a life in ministry.

Additionally, through the DHM, you can apply for the Edwin G. and Lauretta M. Michael Scholarship, which is available for the wives of ministers. This ministry scholarship is for special minister’s wives – those who put their own educations on hold so that their husbands could complete their theological educations.

If you will be focusing on youth ministries, you can apply for the Lloyd and Iva Mattison Youth Ministry Scholarship through the DHM. If you will be enrolled in a seminary program or a graduate ministerial program at the University of Chicago Divinity School, the Union Theological Seminary, the Vanderbilt Divinity School, or the Yale Divinity School, you may be eligible for the James M. Philputt
Memorial Scholarship and this fund also has a loan program available.

Other DHM scholarships for ministry of education that you may be interested in include the HELM financial aid program, which is administered through the Disciples of Christ and which is available for undergraduate and doctorate programs, and the full tuition fellowship offered by Eureka College.

All of these Christian ministry scholarships can be applied for with one application, through the DHM by going to – ministry scholarships. If you want to be certain that a particular scholarship is included with the single application, you will need to contact the DHM directly.

Note that some ministry scholarship opportunities will have eligibility requirements other than being a seminary student, or being of a certain race or gender as well, and funds available for each Christian scholarship will vary, based on the funds that are available for each year, and the number of available scholarships for ministry education that will be awarded from each fund will also vary based on availability of funds.
