Baptist Church and Women’s Missionary Union Scholarships

Women’s Missionary Union (WMU)

Scholarship Name: WMU Foundation Scholarships
Description: Being the child of a missionary can be a very interesting experience, between travel and meeting new people and experiencing new cultures, attending college might seem almost…mundane. But who knew that being that child of a missionary could actually help you to get money to go to college, which is excellent incentive to pursue your degree. Scholarships are also available for missionaries themselves who are pursuing higher education degrees, and there are a few small scholarships for those who are involved in missionary work but aren’t necessarily children of missionaries themselves. Scholarships aren’t very large (about $200-$400) but they can go a long way towards books and other expenses
