The Timothy Scholarship Program helps qualified single international students from the Third World receive training when they would not otherwise have the funds to do so. This fund enables carefully selected, worthy young men, who are called to preach, to come from other nations to BJU. These young men are trained here to return to their respective countries to be godly leaders and church planters among their own people.
The Timothy Scholarship Program is funded in three ways: regular monthly offerings of the faculty and staff, offerings and honoraria received by Dr. Jones III when he is preaching away from campus, and gifts from concerned individuals and organizations (churches, mission boards, etc.).
The WORLD Fund is similar to the Timothy Fund except that it is broader in scope—it is for both men and women and is not limited to just those who are called to preach. This fund helps bring qualified students from foreign lands to BJU to receive a Christian education and then return to their homeland better equipped to serve the Lord in all walks of life.
The WORLD Fund is funded in many different ways. Dr. Jones III’s original intent was that believers around the world would give, on the occasion of their birthday, one dollar for every year they have been in the world. We regularly receive gifts from concerned individuals and organizations (churches, mission boards, etc.) who desire to take part in continuing the WORLD Fund.
