"I feel blessed," said Aaron Jeffery of Clarks Summit, PA. "We're going out for internship, so finances are going to be tough. This will give us some financial freedom. This is a big blessing and a relief."

Jeffery was awarded the Regular Baptist Press Book Award and the Grant and Leona Auker Seminary Pastoral Scholarship.

"It's really a blessing to have financial support," said Andrew Bertodatti, from Long Island, NY. "Right now I am studying and working at the same time, so this will help me to be able to study and do ministry."

Bertodatti received a scholarship from the John Allen Seminary Endowment.
