What It's All About

Office Depot Office Max, Inc. and The National Baptist Convention have partnered to provide exclusive savings on all of your business needs, including office supplies, equipment and photocopying. In exchange for your patronage, Office Depot will return a percentage of the aggregate amount spent with them to underwrite the National Baptist Congress Dream Makers Scholarships Fund that will award FOUR-YEAR scholarships and facilitate participation in missions work.  Applications for the Office Depot Office Max discounts are accepted year-round, and applications for the scholarships are accepted on a defined schedule.  The first award will be given at the 111th Annual Session of the National Baptist Congress of Christian Education to be held in Tampa, Florida, June 20-24, 2016.

Dream Makers Dual Vision

  1. To bring educational dreams to fruition for young people within the National Baptist Congress of Christian Education.
  2. To allow servanthood opportunities for the young people within the National Baptist Congress of Christian Education.

​Dream Makers Dual Purposes

The National Baptist Congress Dream Makers Scholarship was designed to provide educational opportunities to youth where the principles of discipleship would be actualized within two venues:

  1. Higher education and
  2. Missions work in Haiti

Scholarship Awards and Missions Trips Processes

The first four-year scholarship will be awarded at the 2016 Annual Session of the Congress of Christian Education in Tampa, Florida. The scholarship will be awarded based on the dual purposes of the program:   education and missions work. Scholarship awardees will be evaluated based on both purposes.  The first Dream Makers Missions Trip to Haiti in 2016 is open to any interested young person, however, the application process will be competitive and only a small group will be selected.  Participants will be expected to raise their own funds for the trip.  IMPORTANT:  There are two different application procedures and two deadlines.  The deadline for the Dream Makers Missions Trip application is December 1, 2015.  The deadline for the Dream Makers Scholarship application is March 31, 2016.  Applicants may apply for one or both.  However, the Scholarship requires that a mission trip be completed by the close of the student’s 2nd year of college after receiving the scholarship.  Scholarship recipients may have some of their Mission Trip expenses underwritten from the Dream Makers Fund, but will be expected to raise the majority of the funds needed to participate.
