The John Dolaghan Student Scholarship Fund was founded to enrich individuals desiring to pursue a role in ministry who exhibit an aptitude for leadership. Application for the award is open to Gordon-Conwell—Jacksonville students enrolled in any degree-seeking track with a GPA of 3.5 or above.
The award is based primarily on the assessment of applicant’s qualifications by a small board of individuals. The primary vehicle for this assessment will be a series of short essays written by the applicant (see below).
Awards will be granted in the Fall, and will cover the tuition of one course in each term of the academic year awarded (Fall, Spring, Summer). Recipients must be enrolled in at least 2 courses per semester for the award to apply. Scholarship renewal for subsequent academic years will be based on faculty recommendation.

- Scholarship essays
- Statement on career objectives
