Perkins’ Baptist House of Studies has been awarded a $2.7 million three-year grant from the Eula Mae and John Baugh Foundation, a Texas-based foundation committed to supporting the work of faith-based, nonprofit organizations. The grant will fund approximately 10 full-time Baptist students—enrolled in Perkins Masters, Doctor of Ministry and Doctor of Pastoral Music degree programs—as BaughScholars.  In addition to covering full tuition and fees, the fund will provide emergency aid for students enrolled in the program.

Founded in 2019, the Perkins Baptist House of Studies fosters community for ministerial students, faculty, and staff who identify with the Baptist and Free Church traditions. It is a spiritual, rather than a physical, house that especially supports and encourages students as they pursue their academic and ecclesial training in an ecumenical and university-based seminary.
