Garland Offutt Scholars Program

As documented in the Seminary’s 2018 “Report on Slavery and Racism in the History of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary,” the Seminary recognizes the tragedy of its own institutional entanglement in the history of slavery and racism. Named in honor of the Seminary’s first African-American graduate, this scholarship is designed to redress the legacy of slavery and legal segregation in the United States and to provide tuition assistance to qualified African-American students who are pursuing theological education at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in any of the Seminary’s degree programs and Boyce College.
