Samford University

Welcome to the Preministerial Scholars Program

Samford University’s Preministerial Scholars is an unprecedented preprofessional and scholarship program. Combining the academic study of religion with the practical experience of internships and cadres, the program seeks to equip students for church-related and Christian ministries. Each year, a limited number of merit scholarships are offered to entering freshmen. The program is highly competitive. Priority will be given to applicants who score a minimum of 26 on the ACT; however, qualified individuals with lower test scores are encouraged to apply.  Students who are invited to join may receive a scholarship for up to $15,000 annually.

Please download our scholarship brochure for more detailed scholarship information.
