The great majority
of students attending Western Seminary could not do so were it not for
the fact that each student's education is underwritten, in part, by
many hundreds of friends of the seminary who invest generously in their
training. Still, the challenge of striving to ensure that every qualified
student who is called of God to Western has the financial resources
to attend and graduate is daunting.
students increasingly rely upon the availibility of scholarship funding
to make their education possible. It is an unfortunate reality that
without assistance, many who graduate will be so burdened with debt
that their long-term survival in ministry will be in jeopardy. A key
part of the mission of Western's Advancement Department is to help secure
the scholarship resources that help our students move from the church
to Western classrooms to the ministries and fields of the world.
Here are some of
the ways that men and women have chosen to invest in our students through
the creation of scholarship opportunities:
