Applications and supporting documents for a Baptist Foundation of Indiana scholarship must be received by April 1. Through the gifts of donors, scholarship funds are available for students who are members of SCBI churches and are preparing for vocational ministry at a college or seminary. A link to the online application can be found at

The Indiana Baptist Student Memorial Fund, set up in 1965, was the first trust managed by the Baptist Foundation of Indiana. Proceeds from this fund have blessed 656 students with scholarships. Because of many contributions, small and large, more than one quarter million dollars has been distributed through the years.

Every year in April and May the BFI Board members review information from applicants. They prayerfully decide how to allocate available funds, which are rarely enough to help every qualified applicant. If the Lord is moving you to donate to this fund that supports the training of vocational ministers, please contact BFI at
