The International Youth Department Scholarship (IYD) has been established to financially assist students who are active members of Church of God in Christ. The IYD Scholarship is to provide financial assistance to High School Graduates and College Students who have already completed their first year of college, or who are continuing their pursuit of higher degrees, or professional certifications.
The purpose of IYD is to award scholarships to our future leaders/candidates who meet ALL eligibility requirements listed below. Funds are distributed based on contributions to meet our objectives.
Candidate eligibility requirements are as follows:
- The candidate must have achieved a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (or equivalent) in grades.
- The scholarship award must be used for costs incurred in attending a college or university of acceptance.
- The candidate must be an active member of local Church Of God In Christ for a minimum of 12 months and in good standing (validated by a character reference from a church leader) and supporter of Church of God in Christ.
