2022 Essay Contest: “Clothed in Righteousness”

Posted On November 01, 2021

We’re pleased to announce our 2022 Essay Contest. If you are an incoming student who will be joining us on campus in the fall 2022 semester, you could win a full scholarship for your first year of tuition at Reformation Bible College.

In this year’s contest, students are invited to submit essays on the doctrine of the redemptive work of Jesus Christ. Our college hymn, “Clothed in Righteousness,” was written by our founder and first president, Dr. R.C. Sproul. This hymn voices praise to God for the imputation of Christ’s righteousness to all who trust in Him. By interacting with the hymn by Dr. Sproul, in addition to other biblical and theological sources, the winning essay will best explain why the doctrines of justification and imputation are foundational to understanding what Jesus has accomplished for the salvation of His people.

In addressing this theme, essays should be about 4,500 words in length, contain careful biblical, historical, and theological reflection, and apply that knowledge to life today. The winner of the contest will receive a full scholarship for his or her first year of tuition.

To be eligible for the contest, students must complete a full application and submit all supplemental materials to RBC by March 1, 2022. Only one essay submission may be entered per student.

Entries must be received by March 1, 2022. Submissions will be accepted here, by email (scholarship@reformationbiblecollege.org), or by mail (441 Ligonier Court, Sanford, Florida 32771). Applicants are responsible for mailing all application materials and essay submissions. Mail-in submissions must be received by the Admissions office by March 1, 2022. If you have any questions, please call 888-722-1517 or email admissions@reformationbiblecollege.org.

The tuition scholarship prize applies only to applicants intending to enroll full-time in the fall 2022 semester as a degree-seeking student and is non-transferable.

Reformation Bible College reserves the right to publish the winning essay, in whole or in part. The essay may not be published elsewhere without the written permission of Reformation Bible College.
