CHRISTIAN VOCATION SCHOLARSHIP (CVS)

 

The CVS is available to students with financial need beyond what is available from federal programs and family resources. Under this program, it is expected that students will also seek employment (during summers, breaks, school year, etc.) whereby his or her work earnings help contribute to school expenses. Students will meet this expectation on the honor system. Furthermore, these students are required to volunteer one hour of work to an approved non-profit ministry for each $100.00 received through this fund.

 

To receive the scholarship students must be registered at least half time and be in good standing with all departments of this institution. Application is made with two documents: the FAFSA and the institution’s Scholarship Application are available in the shared files on Populi and the Financial Aid Office. F-1 students can submit a copy of their Federal Income Tax Form or a statement of all available finances. The application deadline is March 1st for all students for the next academic year. The Financial Aid Office may verify up to 50% of applications. The scholarship will be awarded to students meeting requirements to the extent of available funds, beginning with students having the highest need (0 EFC) and maintaining a GPA of 2.0 or greater.

 

The following chart is based on EFC numbers and represents the maximum CVS available per semester:

EFC from FAFSA Full Time Three-Quarter Time Half Time
0-1200  $1,000.00  $750.00  $500.00
