1st Generation Scholarship

As a part of our financial aid offering, the 1st Generation Scholarship is designed to serve any incoming student who is a first-generation college student (i.e., neither parent completed a bachelor’s degree). For students who are first in their family to pursue higher education, this scholarship will help start that journey!

We know that students who choose Master’s are not just wanting to pay for a degree but to invest in true education. That’s why we strive to offer students a Christ-centered education within the financial reach of all and endeavor to keep costs as low as possible. This scholarship may be stacked with additional aid, scholarships, or grants to create an affordable tuition package tailored to you.
