/ Center for Ministry Studies


Our center manages two scholarships available to students called to ministry and needing financial assistance.

CrossRoads Scholarships – High School Seniors

Available for incoming freshmen who are current high school seniors and have been accepted for admission to Hope College.

If you are potentially 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.

CrossRoads Scholars meet regularly throughout their first year at Hope College.

RCA SCHOLARSHIPS – Hope students

The Reformed Church in America (RCA) Classical Board of Benevolence has been helping Hope College students pursue their goal of full-time ministry since 1875. Hope College manages this benevolent fund to students.

Hope College students who qualify and apply for financial assistance are interviewed. Upon the approval of the selection committee, they are given a grant to help fund their undergraduate education at Hope College.

Hope students may apply by or during the spring of their sophomore or junor year.
