Scholarships and Awards

Scholarships, which are merit-based and non-repayable, are monetary awards provided to students to assist them with their educational costs. Awards, which are also provided to assist with educational costs, may require a demonstration of financial need or leadership ability and potential as shown through ministry and/or extracurricular activities.  All students who receive scholarships and/or awards must meet the specific requirements as outlined in the scholarship/award descriptors. The Admissions Committee or the Awards Committee, which are both chaired by the Dean of Educational Services, oversees the awarding of all scholarships and awards.
