About BJUSF

We believe Bob Jones University does a superior job of equipping Christian students with excellent vocational skills while helping them develop character and a biblical worldview needed to impact the world for Christ. A Christian education makes an impact in homes, the workplace, communities, and the world for Christ. Will you help?

The BJU Scholarship Fund exists to award financial aid to students with a demonstrated need that are pursuing a Christian education at Bob Jones University. Our goal is to enable students to attend a quality Christian university and shape them into leaders who can turn tomorrow’s world upside down. 

BJUSF  is a qualified 501(c)(3), and all gifts to it or to specific endowed scholarships are tax-deductible.

Caleb Chisom Scholarship 

Caleb was an avid reader and a diligent student in all of his homeschool subjects. Growing up in a rural community in Virginia, he developed a great love for the outdoors and for all the activities that a boy his age could enjoy.

However, there was one subject and activity that Caleb enjoyed above all others—drawing. Even at the age of 3, Caleb would sit quietly for hours, pencil in hand, drawing pictures. The dominant request at his birthday was always for more art supplies.

Having accepted the Lord as his personal Savior at the age of 7, Caleb grew in his love for Christ. His primary goal was to attend Bob Jones University to receive a degree in art. At age 13, Caleb formulated a plan to earn the funds for college; he certainly was not afraid of hard work to achieve a special goal.

However, the Lord had some different plans for Caleb, and through it all He showed Himself faithful. In 2001, at the age of 9, Caleb was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor. Following surgery and treatments, he recovered and resumed his enthusiasm for learning and for art. Then in 2005 he was diagnosed with a second brain tumor that was inoperable. On July 18, 2006, at age 14, Caleb went home to be with his Lord and Savior.

Tax-deductible gifts to the Caleb Chisom Scholarship may be sent to BJUSF, Box 34555, Greenville, SC 29614, or through our online giving form.

Deferred Gifts

Deferred gifts can be arranged to be received over time. This method of giving can often allow you to make a much larger gift than you may have thought possible while providing numerous tax benefits. A deferred gift can often provide an income for the rest of your life and/or the life of a loved one. Learn more about deferred gifts.

Retirement Plan Assets

A very effective way to fund a charitable gift is with retirement plan assets. Learn more here.

What can I give to BJU Scholarship Fund?

You may give cash or any type of property to BJUSF, including stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and collectibles. You may also wish to include BJUSF in your estate plan. Learn more about ways to give or contact us  at 1.800.340.2671 for assistance.

How can I give to BJU Scholarship Fund?

The greatest current need is gifts of cash . However, BJUSF is an excellent partner for a Charitable Remainder Trust, a Charitable Lead Trust, or for naming as a beneficiary under a Last Will & Testament, Living Trust, life insurance policy, or retirement plan, such as an IRA, 401(k), or 403(b). Learn more about deferred gifts and retirement plan assets.

How much of my donation will go toward student scholarships?
