Providence Christian College currently offers seven different types of scholarships for students. Providence is committed to providing scholarships for students through private funding. These funds are made available by supporters of the college, people who believe in the importance of a distinctly Reformed Christian College.
Scholarships are given for proven academic performance. These scholarships take into account SAT/ACT scores and high school GPA and range from $1,000 to $15,000.
High school cumulative GPA minimum: 2.7 GPA
ACT Composite score minimum: 21 ACT
SAT Math + Critical Reading Score combination minimum: 1060
Transfer (24 credits and above) cumulative GPA minimum: 3.0 GPA
Transfer students below 24 transferable credits will be considered for an academic scholarship based on their high school GPA and scores.
The Academic Merit Scholarship is renewable upon recipient maintaining an acceptable institutional GPA at Providence. Students must maintain a certain cumulative GPA each year in order to renew their academic scholarships. If a student’s cumulative GPA drops below the criteria by the end of the year the student will lose his/her scholarship. If the student raises the GPA above that criteria in one of the following years at Providence, re-application for the scholarship is possible. Students have the right to appeal any scholarship decisions to the scholarship appeals committee.
Cumulative GPA requirements for scholarship renewal:
2.7-3.24 high school GPA=2.0 college GPA
3.25-3.74 high school GPA=2.5 college GPA
3.75+ high school GPA=3.0 college GPA

The Pauline Scholarship is for students who attend a public high school or college and are deeply grounded in faith while looking to influence the broader culture with the good news of Jesus Christ.
The apostle Paul stated to followers of Jesus Christ in one of his many letters that God sent him to the Greeks, while others are sent to the Jews, Israel. Greeks were not people from Greece, necessarily, instead Paul meant those outside of Israel or ones who are not somehow connected to Israel. Thus, Paul was different from other apostles, like John, Peter, or Timothy. He was sent into the dominant culture to witness about Jesus; in other words, Paul was sent to live out his faith and speak about his faith in Jesus Christ in a way that connected with, exposed, and countered the culture.
At Providence, we seek to develop students that take this same pursuit as Paul. We seek to develop students who are deeply grounded in their faith while looking for ways to engage the broader culture with the good news of Jesus Christ.
The Pauline Scholarship ranges from $2000-$5000 per year and is renewable for four years. To apply for the scholarship, please complete one of the essays below and send to your admissions counselor or email@example.com. The priority deadline for scholarship application is March 1.
In an effort to recognize the importance of continued higher education from a Reformed perspective, Providence will award a scholarship up to $5,000 (approximately 20% the cost of tuition) to students whose home church is confessionally Reformed.
This scholarship is renewable each year. Denominations eligible for this scholarship include: URC, CRC, RCA, CanRC, OPC, PCA, RCUS, PR, RPCNA, Bible Presbyterian, and Reformed Baptist. Other denominations will be considered on a case-by-case basis by contacting your Admissions Counselor.

Scholarships will be awarded to juniors and seniors at Providence who embody and exemplify the qualities the faculty desires in a Providence student. The award will be based upon college academic performance at Providence as well as leadership and service in the community. An applicant’s marked academic improvement while at Providence will also be taken into consideration. To apply, sophomore and junior students must have completed one full semester at Providence and submit a Faculty Select Scholarship application including completing the essay questions. These applications will be reviewed by the Faculty Senate. The senate members may also nominate any student they deem appropriate who has not applied to be considered for the scholarship. They will determine the number and size of the awards offered in each division. After the initial awarding, junior students may renew the scholarship for an additional year contingent upon faculty approval, which will take into consideration the maintenance of a 3.0 cumulative GPA and demonstrated leadership and service.
Christian Schools International (CSI) has a strong tradition of supporting Reformed, Christian K-12 education in the Southwest, as well as internationally.

The funds will be disbursed before each semester at $500 per semester. Only current freshmen, sophomore and junior students may apply.
