Broadview Missionary Baptist Church strives to promote and encourage high scholastic achievement through the efforts of the Scholarship Committee. The committee's motto is "STRIVING FOR EXELLENCE." When we strive for EXCELLENCE, we look to God for guidance. Luke 12:48 states, "To whom much is given, much is required." We must be good stewards of God's money. Therefore, be mindful of how we choose careers, classes, and handle a newfound freedom. We must alway pray and ask God to direct us where He wants us to be used.

ALL APPLICANTS MUST MEET THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA:

  1. All applicants must turn in a completed Scholarship Application.

  2. All applicants must be in "good standing" with Broadview Missionary Baptist Church. Good Standing means, being active in one or more of the church's auxiliaries, (i.e. Act Teens, Christian Education Classes, Usher Board, Choir, etc.). The applicant's attendance record will be verified through the church office. This information will be of major importance in awarding the scholarships.
