The Young Presbyterian Scholars and Presbyterian Heritage Scholars programs are partnerships between the local church and Westminster College that seek to provide students with opportunities to continue to grow in their faith while attending one of the leading liberal arts colleges in the country.


Benefits of Presbyterian Scholars Programs

Young Presbyterian and Presbyterian Heritage Scholars have the opportunity to:

  • Receive a scholarship that is renewable every year for four years
  • Grow personally and spiritually at one of the nation's most admired liberal arts colleges
  • Mentor/partner with other students throughout the program's course
  • Study and discuss issues relating to faith

It is the goal of both Presbyterian Scholars programs to parallel the mission of Westminster College, which is to help men and women develop the competencies, commitments, and characteristics which distinguish humanity at its best, and to enhance the spiritual growth of each student.
