You may be wondering what a “Covenant Relationship” with the Presbyterian church looks like at Austin College. It means that we approach every student with humility, hospitality, and honesty. Humility means we don’t claim to tell students whether or how to have faith or what their faith should be. Hospitality means that we work hard to help every interested student find communities to live out their chosen faith. Honesty means we continue to cherish our historic and ongoing relationship with the Presbyterian church. It is because we are related to the Presbyterian church that we approach every student with humility, hospitality, and honesty.

#ROONATION: What do we value?
The College seeks to serve the Presbyterian Church through two distinct scholarship and financial aid programs:
Awarded to students who have been members of a Presbyterian Church (USA) congregation for at least six months and have demonstrated high academic achievement. Strong candidates will have demonstrated consistent involvement in the life of the Church. A limited number of $1,000 to $3,000 awards are available each year. This scholarship is renewable for each undergraduate year, provided the student maintains good academic standing and remains involved in meaningful ways in the life of the Church and/or in service to others. Nominations should be submitted by January 15 to College Chaplain John Williams.
Awarded to Austin College students who are dependents of Presbyterian Church (USA) Professionals. Awards for qualified students range from $1,000 to $15,000 annually. For details about this program, including eligibility criteria, please contact College Chaplain John Williams at 903.813.2220.
