In 2002, as Westminster College celebrated its 150th anniversary, the Board of Trustees took a serious look at the question of what it means to be a PC(USA) related college. As a result, the decision was made to offer up to 150 scholarships, worth $18,500 annually for Academic Year 2013-2014, to outstanding PC(USA) students and offer them a way to continue to grow in faith and leadership while on our campus.
The scholarships are given to all PC(USA) churches to award to deserving students. Each congregation can select two students who meet the following qualifications:
- PC(USA) membership
- 3.5 (or higher) cumulative HSGPA
- Nomination by pastor/congregation by December 1
- December 1 - Pastor / Congregation Nomination
- December 15 - Student Application to the college
