Pre-Ministerial Scholarships at Randolph-Macon College

October 19, 2022

Young people are searching for meaningful vocations as they make plans after high school.  Do you know someone considering a call to Christian ministry?  Whether it’s a call to preach, mission work, faith-based non-profit leadership, music ministry, youth ministry, chaplaincy... the Church needs young leaders who are prepared to guide us into the future.   


Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, VA is the oldest continuously operative Methodist College in the U.S. and is committed to nurturing a new generation of church leaders.  Our Bailey Scholars program awards a half-tuition scholarship for the first two years followed by a full tuition scholarship for a student’s final two years at R-MC.  Bailey Scholars also benefit from two internships (one for academic credit and one for a $3,000 stipend) and a weekly meeting with other pre-ministerial students.  Students from all Christian traditions are welcome into the program.  We’d love to meet potential students you can recommend! 


Please share this information with young people and youth ministers whom you know.  Learn more at  The application deadline for next year’s incoming class is March 1, 2023.  Contact R-MC Chaplain and Pre-Ministerial Program Director Rev. Kendra Grimes at for more information.
