Florida School of Discipleship Scholarship

 

Florida School of Discipleship (FSOD) understands there are many deserving students who could not attend this life-changing program without financial assistance.  Therefore, we offer FSOD Scholarships, which allow students to attain educational goals, meet ministry and secular career objectives, and succeed to their fullest ability by attending FSOD.  FSOD Scholarships are awarded to deserving students based upon the following:

Who Should Apply (Eligibility)

To be considered for a scholarship, an applicant must be an accepted first year student, or a current FSOD student, who is returning to the program for a second or third year, and who meets the criteria set forth below: 

 

Scholarship Criteria

The decision to grant a scholarship is based upon the following criteria:

  • Academic achievement and merit

  • Leadership potential

  • Financial need

  • Recognized contribution to their church, youth group, community

  • Ministry involvement

  • Goals include a ministry, missionary, or secular marketplace career, as demonstrated in their academics, involvement and contributions.

 

Students are required to submit the following as part of the application process:

  • Letters of reference

  • Character evaluation form

  • Student essay

  • Personal interview

  • High school or college transcripts (if applicable)

  • Financial information summary form

 

Scholarship Award Amount

Each scholarship awarded will be a minimum of $1000, and will be paid in two equal installments.

Scholarship Restrictions

  • FSOD Scholarships are not renewable. They are awarded for one school year (September through May) only.

  • FSOD Scholarship awardees are evaluated in December and March to determine if they are meeting the requirements of the Scholarship.  If they are not, the Scholarship can be rescinded, at which time the awardee is responsible for tuition payment in full.

  • If an FSOD Scholarship awardee drops out of the program, the Scholarship is immediately terminated, and any balance due on tuition is the responsibility of the student. 

 

Deadline

The application deadline is July 15, 2018.  The deadline is the date after which applications will no longer be accepted.  Applications can be submitted any time up to July 15th, and decisions regarding awards will be made as applications come in.  However, no awards will be made after the July 15th deadline.

 

Selection

All applicants are evaluated by a panel of qualified assessors based on the Scholarship Criteria.  If the criteria is not met by an applicant, they will not be eligible for an award, and their application will be withdrawn.  With all conditions met by the applicants, scholarship recipients will be officially advised by email of their award.  As a courtesy, applicants who do not qualify and are unsuccessful in the 2018 FSOD Scholarship application will also be notified by email.
