Dr. John & Earlene McNeal

Clarks Summit University has a unique scholarship opportunity for incoming undergraduate students. The Dr. John & Earlene McNeal Scholarship is provided in partnership with the Fundamental Baptist Fellowship Association, based in Kansas.

Watch a video introducing the Dr. John & Earlene McNeal Scholarship and CSU’s partnership with the FBFA!

CSU will award one full-tuition scholarship to a student who regularly attends an FBFA-member church. This scholarship can be used for eight consecutive semesters as a full-time resident student, provided the student continues in good standing at CSU. The recipient will need to apply for this scholarship and must qualify for the scholarship by meeting the requirements of all financial aid as awarded by CSU; including Christian testimony, financial need and satisfactory academic progress.

The FBFA promotes fellowship between Bible-believing Baptist churches to foster the spirit of evangelism, spread the gospel and advance the cause of Christ through mutual efforts in Christian education and missions.

Dr. John McNeal is the founding and senior pastor of Atlanta Bible Baptist Church in Atlanta. He has served over 50 years  as a pastor and was a member of CSU’s Board of Trustees for 25 years. His wife Earlene McNeal has been a valuable encouragement to both her husband and the CSU family for this long time of service.

Qualifying students can apply for the John & Earlene McNeal Scholarship online.
