Scholarship Information

As part of your application packet you will receive a scholarship application. (You can also obtain this form from the Registrar’s Office.) By completing and submitting this form, you can apply for a number of scholarships provided by various friends of the college. A scholarship committee comprised of members of the administration, faculty, and staff matches the information supplied on your application with the criteria set by donors.

The following list describes some of our available scholarships.

President’s Sacrificial Leadership Scholarship
The President’s Sacrificial Leadership Scholarship has been established to honor students who have exhibited or have the potential to exhibit extraordinary leadership qualities of a sacrificial nature. Sacrifice is defined as a dying to all self-interests in order that those who follow will discover in these sacrificial acts and attitude the potential to rise to new heights of achievement. This achievement will, by its very nature and source, propel the character of all involved to the highest calling they have in Christ. The fulfillment of this calling is identified in a leader who recognizes and follows a sacred vision, who is willing to consider all others before himself or herself, who focuses on the integrity of the process rather than the end result, and who remains committed without constraints even to the point of personal injury or death. Recipients of this scholarship are leaders of the highest character, compassion, and Christ-like nature.

GraduateTeaching Assistantships

Insurance
The college does not provide coverage for your medical care. You must use local doctors, clinics, and hospitals at your own expense, with payment usually required at the time of treatment. Consequently, we strongly encourage you to secure health insurance (under your parents policy, via a work policy, or privately). You may contact the Francis receptionist for information about private plans.

You should also be aware of the benefits and limitations of your coverage. Be sure to bring pertinent policy paperwork with you (e.g. name and phone number of the company, group number, policy number, your social security number).

Likewise, your personal belongings in your residence are not covered by university insurance. We encourage you to purchase a policy to cover these items.
