6:8 Scholars

The 6:8 Scholarship Program at Carson-Newman University is dedicated to nurturing students toward a life of faith-driven action as they seek to become educated citizens and worldwide servant leaders. Through committed community service and intentional faith development, students are challenged to engage their world by acting justly and loving mercy with a humble reflection of Christ.

Students are encouraged to grow in their ability to reflect the Biblical essence of Micah 6:8 and Christlike Servant Leadership. In with seeking to learn what God desires of us, students are required to complete 25 hours of faith-based learning through the Center of Community Engagement. 6:8 Scholars must also complete 50 hours of service which reflects our call to act justly and love mercy. As students are involved in the 6:8 Program they will both experience and be mentored in what it means to serve while walking humbly with God daily. 

Each year, Scholars are selected to join the program through an application and interview process conducted during the year prior to their matriculation at Carson-Newman. In addition to significant opportunities for service and faith development, Scholars can receive a scholarship for their participation in the program, contingent upon their financial aid package.
