Investing in Lives
For many scholarships, specific criteria designated by the individual donors and groups must be met.
Students are encouraged to apply for scholarships and are nominated for awards by professors and department heads. In some cases they are required to write an essay or submit a letter of reference from their pastor.
"This is another step to financial freedom after graduation, more freedom to do ministry,"Â said Anthony Myers, a sophomore Missions major from St. Thomas, PA.
