Church Matching Grant


The Church Matching Grant was developed to encourage churches to support students from their congregation who are pursuing a Christian higher education. This grant will be coordinated with other need-based financial aid. Students can be matched up to $500 per year. To qualify, complete the attached application and submit it to your church official for consideration.

Student Eligibility

Recipients need to re-apply for this scholarship annually. Below are additional qualifications that you may want to consider before completing the application:

  • Student must be enrolled full-time for the full match. If not enrolled full-time, at least half-time enrollment is required to receive a prorated match.
  • Students who are U.S. Citizens or permanent residents must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Canadian applicants need to complete the Kuyper Canadian Financial Aid Application. International students will need to complete the Kuyper Statement of Finances form.
  • A minimum of a 2.0 cumulative GPA on a 4.0 scale (Canadian marks are converted to be equivalent to the scale).
  • The program is based on availability of funds. Re-application for the Church Matching Grant will be offered for a maximum of 4 years (bachelor degree) 2 years (associates) and 1 year (certificate).

Church Donation Eligibility 

  • The church may not submit funds from wages, internships or gifts from individuals to a specific student for the Church Matching Grant. 
  • Only one church check per person. Subsequent checks will be applied to the student’s account without a match.
  • For purposes of this grant, a “church” is understood as a congregation holding weekly services/meetings. Donations from other non-profit organizations will 
not be matched.
  • The church will be notified if a student is ineligible for the grant/match and will have the option to rescind their funds.
