Active International Mission Board (IMB) Scholarship

The Active IMB Scholarship is for degree-seeking, assigned, and fully-funded IMB missionaries/personnel who are currently serving on the mission field or on a stateside assignment. Each academic year, eligible students must read and comply with all institutional Eligibility Standards, reapply for the scholarship, and submit a thank you letter. If the student loses employment status with the IMB, he or she will no longer be eligible for the scholarship. Students will only receive the scholarship for classes that the student completes. If the student withdraws from classes after the drop date, he or she will have their award reduced and the student will be required to cover the full cost of the withdrawn class.
For undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students, the scholarship ensures that 75% of the student’s tuition and student enrollment fees are covered (does not count towards books, housing, or music program fees). This scholarship is available to on-campus and distance learning students. An eligible candidate may be enrolled at full- or part-time status in any undergraduate degree through a first master’s degree at Southeastern.
