Internship Grants for Churches

Partial Scholarships may be available to SBCV Churches who host an intern. The Intern Grant Program is made possible through contributions from SBCV churches to the annual Vision Virginia State Missions Offering, therefore funds are limited and will be distributed based on the priority of need and are not guaranteed.

SBCV Intern Scholarship applications will only be accepted if submitted within the deadlines of the year to which they apply.  The application deadline for a summer intern is March 1.
