The Opportunity Scholars Program is a four-year program established to assist American minority students who otherwise would be unable to afford a Christian higher education.

Many talented and God-loving minority students across the U.S. desire a BJU education—however, segments of these students face insurmountable odds and without extra help, they will not be able to afford attending college. We realize these talented and hard-working students will receive help from somewhere—and we want it to be from BJU.

These students now have an opportunity for additional funding through the Opportunity Scholars Program. As part of this program, 31 American minority students joined the BJU student body during its inaugural year. This fall semester brought 15 new students with 27 Bridge Scholar students returning, totaling 42–an increase of 40%! Our vision is that we would continue to see the number of Opportunity Scholars on campus grow through funds raised for student scholarships.

The Minority Scholarship is an endowed scholarship created by individuals who love the school, who are minorities themselves, and who desire to see more minority students enrolled at BJU to be trained for the service of Jesus Christ.

The scholarship is available to African-American, African, Pacific Islander, Asian and Native American students enrolled at BJU who demonstrate academic ability, spiritual leadership, and financial need. Undergraduate students will be given consideration before graduate students.

It was created in 2000 to meet the need for Christ-honoring leaders throughout the U.S. and abroad. Our goal is to enable more students who are minorities to pursue a Christian education at BJU, so they may be effective leaders who honor God and stand for righteousness and truth.

This partial scholarship may be used to cover tuition, fees, books, supplies, and equipment required for courses at BJU.

All gifts to the Minority Scholarship are tax-deductible.

The Hispanic Assistance Scholarship (formerly the Hispanic Assistance Fund) is an endowed scholarship created by individuals who love the school, who are of Hispanic descent themselves, and who desire to see more Hispanic students enrolled at BJU to be trained for the service of Jesus Christ.

It was created in 2004 to meet the need for Christ-honoring leaders in the Hispanic community throughout the U.S. and abroad. Our goal is to enable more Hispanic students to pursue a Christian education at BJU, so they may be effective leaders who honor God and stand for righteousness and truth.

This partial scholarship may be used to cover tuition, fees, books, supplies, and equipment required for courses at BJU.

Eligible students must be enrolled at BJU, be of Hispanic descent, and should demonstrate academic ability, spiritual leadership, and financial need. Undergraduate students will be given consideration before graduate students.

All gifts to the Hispanic Assistance Scholarship are tax-deductible.
