A scholarship is an award of financial aid for students to further their education. Wayland Baptist University is fortunate to have a large number of endowed scholarships provided by donors, churches, alumni and organizations loyal to Wayland.

With educational costs rising nationwide, many parents and prospective students believe private education is beyond reach. We strive to help our students receive the maximum aid available to them. We offer endowed scholarships based on a student’s major field of study, residency, academics, or other specified criteria. We match students with scholarships to help them attain their educational goals. Our main goal in offering financial aid for students is to help students attain their education goals, whatever they may be.
