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.

Application Deadline: August 1 (Fall) and January 1 (Spring).

Each academic department may award honors scholarships ranging up to $10,000.

The Honors Scholarships are for new incoming traditional students who have a minimum 3.5 cumulative GPA. Recipients are expected to maintain good academic and social standing and a cumulative 3.0 GPA.
