The Missouri Baptist Foundation (MBF) encourages students that desire a Christian higher education to pursue their dreams. MBF helps students with the cost of their education by offering scholarships. Half of the scholarship will be applied at the beginning of the Fall semester, and the other half applied in the Spring.
Note: In addition to this application, the student will also need to send a Pastoral Referral form to be filled out by the deadline.
The 2024 applications will open in Spring 2023.
