Regent is able to offer a number of university-wide endowed scholarships to graduate, professional or doctoral students through the generosity of university donors. Competition for these awards is highly selective. The number of awards is limited and varies each year. Current and accepted incoming Regent University students who meet the qualifications may apply for an endowed scholarship.
There are no minimum academic requirements; however, competition for these awards is highly competitive. Prior recipients have an average incoming undergraduate GPA of 3.43, a Regent graduate GPA of 3.73 (3.40 for law), average GRE test scores over the 50th percentile in each category, and LSAT scores of 155.
The Azusa Street Scholarship fund was established to commemorate the Azusa Street Revival in Los Angeles, California, from 1906-1909. The leading figure in the revival was the Reverend William J. Seymour, an African-American Baptist minister. These scholarships are specifically designated for those who are called to serve the African-American community in the United States. The scholarship is 100 percent of tuition costs, plus a book stipend of up to $300 per term.
The Beazley Scholarship fund was established in April 1984, by the chancellor, Dr. M.G. “Pat” Robertson, in memory of the late Fred W. Beazley. Mr. Beazley was a leading businessman in the Tidewater area and significant supporter of Dr. Robertson’s early ministry. The scholarship criteria emphasize academic merit and residency history. First consideration is given to students from the Tidewater region of Virginia who have excellent academic histories and, otherwise, meet the criteria. However, students with excellent academic histories not from the Tidewater region of Virginia are also encouraged to apply in the event there are not enough suitable applicants from Tidewater for the award. The scholarship is 100 percent of tuition costs plus a book stipend of up to $300 per term. For purposes of this scholarship, the Tidewater region is defined as the following cities and counties: Chesapeake, Gloucester County, Hampton, James City County, Newport News, Norfolk, Poquoson, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Virginia Beach, Williamsburg and York County. Those next to be considered will be from the states of Virginia and North Carolina, then all other states and countries.
The Dooner Scholarship was established by Mr. William J. Dooner, a dedicated Christian supporter of Regent University, who was affiliated with the Roman Catholic Church. In order to assist those Regent University students with Roman Catholic backgrounds in meeting the cost of their education, Mr. Dooner has generously established this scholarship fund. Preference will be given to students showing current affiliation with the Roman Catholic Church. Students are required to submit a letter of recommendation from their current priest. The scholarship is awarded on an academic basis for a maximum of 50 percent of tuition costs. Students must reapply each academic year. Students receiving the Dooner Scholarship may also apply for other financial aid.Requires at least one letter of recommendation from your priest. (No more than three letters of recommendation will be accepted.)
Friends of the university, in memory of Luther J. Stallings Jr. and Elizabeth A. Stallings have established this scholarship fund. Their goal, exhibited by their generosity on an annual basis in funding this scholarship, is to assist Regent students in a variety of disciplines to meet the tuition costs of attending Regent University. Virginia domiciliary residence is preferred for at least half of the scholarships awarded, while there is also the intent to have at least one recipient who is an international student on an annual basis. Need is a consideration, as derived by the use of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). International students cannot file the FAFSA, and are therefore exempt from this application step. The awards made from this fund are highly selective and the number, as well as the dollar amount of the awards, are limited and vary each year, depending upon the availability of funds. Awards are made for one academic year at a time, with the award being effective beginning in the fall semester through the following summer term(s). To retain the award from one semester to the next, the student must maintain at least the minimum appropriate grade point average each term as defined in the Regent catalog as necessary to avoid being placed upon academic probation. Requires at least one letter of recommendation from your priest or pastor. No more than three letters of recommendation will be accepted.
A Regent University alumnus, who is a quadriplegic, established the John G.C. Miller Scholarship fund in honor of her father.

The awards made from this fund are highly selective and are limited and vary each year.
Awards are made for one academic year. To retain the award from one semester to the next, the student must maintain at least the minimum appropriate grade point average each semester as defined in the university catalog as necessary to avoid being placed on academic probation.
