Ministry Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarship Program

The Ministry Leaders of Tomorrow (MLT) Scholarship Program exists to identify students called into pastoral ministry, equip them with knowledge and skills to help them be successful, and resource them for continued growth and retention.

Each year, the MLT Scholarship Committee will guarantee five recipients receive $80,000 in total scholarships to Evangel University. The fund guarantees the recipient a minimum of $20,000 per year in scholarships over four years when the student remains eligible and in good standing with the University.

The MLT scholarship will fund the difference between traditional Evangel scholarships and grants up to $20,000 per year. Should a recipient receive other Evangel scholarships totaling $20,000 per year or more, the MLT scholarship guarantee will be considered met.


  • Have a minimum 3.0 high school or college transfer GPA.
  • Be a graduating high school senior or college transfer student. This scholarship cannot be deferred. In the event the recipient cannot enroll in the term following graduation, the scholarship will be awarded to another candidate.
