Criteria for Grants

Baptist Medical Dental Fellowship Student Mission Grants are made possible by donations. The purpose of the grant is to provide assistance to students who are meeting the healthcare needs of unserved or underserved people domestically or internationally with the intent to share the love of Christ.

2. Objectives

  • Expose grant recipients to the problems affecting the world: nutrition, health, and quality of life.
  • Encourage their involvement with those that have hope of modifying those problems.
  • Provide exposure to mentors who may influence their vocational choices.

3. Types of Projects

Most all types of health related or meeting human needs projects would qualify as long as there is a missional focus.

4. Supervision

Each student should be supervised by an approved supervisor/mentor who will be chosen by the local mission/institution leadership. In most cases these persons would be medical missions personnel, mission administrators, field missionaries, and/or designated national leaders.

5. Spiritual Evaluation
