Loan Repayment Program

With the goal of getting more graduates to the field more quickly, Liberty University alumni will have the opportunity to participate in the Center for International Engagement’s Loan Repayment Program. This program will pay up to 20% per year of the balance of federal student loans (for up to $30,000 per individual) for those graduates who meet the program’s qualifications, which include at a minimum acceptance into an evangelical sending agency moving towards field placement for long-term service.  Payments will begin under this program once the alumnus is on the field.

Any Liberty University alumnus who intends on serving overseas is welcome to apply, but applicants are encouraged to use this opportunity to focus their service on an unreached/unengaged people group, the translation of the Bible in a language in which it has never been before, or service within the 10/40 window or among immigrant populations from the 10/40 window (the area between the 10th and 40th parallels, which represents the least Christian part of the world).

Students who were a Global Studies major or minor will be prioritized, and applicants should also demonstrate proactive engagement with a sending agency prior to graduation. 

Applicants are considered twice a year by the Center for International Engagement before recommendations are made to the university’s Enrollment Management division for a compliance review and final approval.  The review requires that students not be delinquent or in default on any federal student loans.

Liberty University will then assist in coordinating the documentation of this benefit with each approved evangelical missions agency as each agency works with the missionary through the agency's regular candidate approval process.
