Faith and Justice Scholars

Apply now for the Faith & Justice Scholars Program! 

Carson-Newman Faith and Justice Scholars are 5 or more incoming freshman who are selected via a competitive process in the fall of their senior year of high school (or the year prior to college entrance for nontraditional students).

Faith and Justice Scholars receive scholarship funding each year over four academic years. The Scholars are supported in an intentional community that serves those in need, participates in prayer and reflection, and engages in critical thought concerning justice issues, including opportunities to participate in formation programs integrating leadership skills and vocational discernment.

Each semester, Scholars complete 100 hours of service with a faith-based nonprofit and complete 40-50 hours of personal and professional development, mentorship, and Bible study.

Applicants for the Faith and Justice Scholars cohort should demonstrate a strong level of commitment to Christian faith, and an openness to principles of relationality, comprehensive ministry, vocational discernment and faith in action.
