GMI/BBI Future Missionary Scholarship Information

Grace Ministries International is offering a scholarship to study at the Berean Bible Institute ( for those who want to serve as missionaries with GMI.

Potential scholarship recipients would first apply to GMI as missionaries and, upon approval, would receive a scholarship to complete the Certificate of Basic Bible Studies (30-hour program) which can be earned entirely through distance studies. To inquire about this scholarship, contact the GMI office by phone (616-241-5666) or email (

Up to two new scholarships per year awarded to qualified and selected students. Scholarship amount will be $2000/year ($1000/semester or each 15 credit hours).
