Zondervan Awards

We are pleased to be a participant in the Zondervan Publishing Company's Biblical Award program.  These awards are to recognize students for outstanding achievement in the area of Biblical studies.  Zondervan gives three awards - one for Biblical Greek, one for Biblical Hebrew, and one for Theology. The recipients are chosen based upon the recommendation of their professors.

The honorees receive an Award Certificate, a congratulatory letter from Zondervan, and an order form that allows them to select a product of their choice from Zondervan's catalog.  The name of each recipient is added to a plaque provided by Zondervan.  These plaques can be seen in the office of the Graduate Studies School of Theology, located in the Gardner Center (Room 102).

The Biblical Greek award began in 1999.

The Biblical Hebrew award began in 2011.

The Theology award began in 2013.
