The Loan Repayment Program is an effort to partner with student-professionals who intend on working and serving internationally, long-term after graduation. From vocational ministry work efforts or serving in humanitarian aid to utilizing their job skill set to gain access to difficult places – Liberty University seeks to partner with graduates everywhere in order to spread the Gospel through a variety of means. It is our hope to empower students with vision, inspire with passion, and to equip with skills that enable the use of their degree for service to the world.
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, difficult or unique access places, service within the 10/40 window, or among the least-reached populations from the 10/40 window.
This program designates the repayment total that will be covered on the student loans, but the monies will be disbursed 20% per year for 5 years until the committed balance is completed. If at any point the applicant leaves the field prior to the 5 years all funds committed will be relinquished. For those graduates who meet the program’s qualifications and are approved, payments will begin as soon as they are on the field.
Applicants are considered twice a year by LU Serve International 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 and that they keep consistent communication as we reach out throughout the year with updates, encouragements, and requests.
