Camp Ministry Matching Gift Program

Dallas Baptist University will match designated Christian Camp gifts for DBU students up to, but not exceeding, $1,500.00 per academic year per student.

The scholarship program is applicable to both graduate and undergraduate students, full-time or part-time.

There are some provisions and requirements to receive this scholarship. The following are some of the scholarship provisions and requirements for the DBU Camp matching gift program. These must be completely reviewed and followed by each participating camp and student:

  • The scholarship program only matches funds from Christian camps that hold Jesus Christ to be Lord and Savior. Gifts from denominations (e.g. Baptist General Convention of Texas, United Methodist Conference, etc.) or parachurch organizations (e.g. Campus Crusade for Christ, BSM, Focus on the Family, etc.) are not included in this matching gift program.
  • The recommended student must have been employed as a full-time staff member for at least one full summer at the camp or must currently be employed as a full-time year-round staff member at the camp, which is funding the scholarship. The scholarship may not be used in lieu of compensation for working at the camp.
  • The Office of Financial Aid reserves the right to request additional documentation from the camps participating in DBU’s Camp Ministry Matching Gift Program to verify eligibility. DBU will have final say related to questions of eligibility for a specific student or camp.
  • Although D1 athletes who receive an athletic scholarship may be eligible to receive camp scholarships, DBU cannot provide camp matching funds to these student-athletes per NCAA regulations. D1 athletes not receiving an athletic scholarship and all D2 athletes are eligible for the DBU Camp Ministry Matching Scholarship.
  • Additional requirements are applicable.
