Logos Evangelical Seminary – Introduction to Student Scholarships
1. The Meaning of Scholarships
At this time, the scholarships are established for the purpose of supporting special missionary causes or encouraging students from specific regions to return to their country to serve. The nature of a scholarship is different from the nature of tuition aid. Students who meet the qualification requirements for a certain scholarship application can also apply for tuition aid at the same time. If the students meet both the qualification requirements and pass the approval of the seminary’s Scholarship and Tuition Aid Committee (STAC), they can receive both tuition aid and scholarship. However, qualified applicants can only apply for one type of scholarship and cannot apply for other scholarships at the same time. In addition, the total amount of both the scholarship and tuition aid shall not exceed the full tuition fee for the semester.
