Explore your vocation

Dr. Harnish and Matt McCoy

At Bluffton we offer several opportunities for you to delve deeper into a field of interest.

 The Ministry Inquiry Program gives you the opportunity to experience first-hand what ministry is for 11 weeks in the summer. Working under the supervision of an experienced pastor, you will be involved in many aspects of a minister's life and work. A $2,000 scholarship is then given towards fall tuition.

  • The Women's Council, an organization of Bluffton alumni, provides Professional Enrichment Grants for Women. Full-time junior, senior or fifth-year women are eligible to apply for grants to obtain professional experience in an anticipated career. For example, a grant could be awarded to cover the registration fee of a professional conference or experience.

Friesen Discovery fund

Friesen Discovery Fund for Business Students  provides funds for research, travel or professional development to business studies students.
