||The CrossRoads Scholarships are designed for young
people who will become the new leaders of the diverse, multicultural
church of the future. They are intended for incoming freshmen (current
high school seniors that have applied and been accepted for admission
to Hope College) who are considering careers in ministry,
whether that be as pastors, teachers, youth ministers, social
workers, or musicians. Students chosen for these scholarships
will demonstrate a strong interest in multicultural or ethnically
diverse ministry and a sense of call to lead and serve the church
in some capacity once they graduate. They should also have a
desire to actively participate in the life of Hope College while
they are students.
If you have ever thought (even a little bit) that you might be
interested in doing some kind of ministry in a multicultural or
racially diverse community, you are eligible to apply for this
program. Four-year renewable scholarships are available based on
demonstrated financial need.
In addition to receiving a monetary award, CrossRoads Scholars
will gather together periodically for conversation about faith,
ministry, and diversity. While this is an important part of the
program, it will not be overly time-consuming.
