The Honors scholarship was designed to recognize students for their academic achievement, service in the church, Christ-like character, and commitment to fulfilling the mission of Dallas Christian College.

What’s our mission? Good question.

Dallas Christian College educates and mentors students to be people of influence, engaging in their calling to the work of Christ in the Church and in the world.

DCC desires to attract the best and brightest students who wish to prepare to be “workers for the harvest,” and we believe that substantial scholarships will help us to that end.

Each academic department may award honors scholarships ranging up to $15,000.

The Honors Scholarships are for new incoming traditional students.

Recipients are expected to maintain good academic and social standing, a cumulative 2.5 GPA, to participate in community/church service, and to be involved in leadership roles in the department from which the scholarship was awarded.

The total scholarship awarded will include all forms of institutional aid. It does not include federal loans or grants or outside scholarships from churches and other organizations.

Any student receiving $7,500 or more in scholarship assistance must live on campus.
