Robertson/Farmer/Hester Doctoral and Postdoctoral Loans

The Southern Baptist Foundation administers two loan funds established by the estates of M. May Robertson, J. W. Farmer, and H. I. Hester. 

The purpose of the loan funds administered by the Southern Baptist Foundation of the Southern Baptist Convention is to assist full-time faculty and administrators from qualifying Southern Baptist educational institutions to attain doctoral degrees from accredited graduate institutions. Qualifying Southern Baptist educational institutions are the six Southern Baptist seminaries and those institutions that receive financial support from their state Baptist convention through Cooperative Program funds for operations, are promoted by their state Baptist convention as part of the convention’s programs and ministries, and whose governing body is elected by their state convention.
