One of the primary ways Liberty University supports the work of missionary families around the world is by offering tuition assistance to their children. Aid is offered to the children of missionaries serving with Liberty-approved mission agencies.
The Missionary Kid Scholarship (MK Scholarship), established for new students beginning enrollment in the spring 2015 semester or later, is available exclusively for children of missionaries. College-age children enrolling at Liberty University may apply for the MK Scholarship if their parents are currently serving on a foreign mission field outside of the United States with a Liberty approved organization.
Under the MK Scholarship, Liberty will provide a full tuition scholarship per academic year (less other federal, state, and Liberty institutional gift assistance; room, board and fees are not included) disbursed over the four consecutive years of your bachelor’s degree. Award amounts are determined after considering the applicant’s academic merit, financial need, and essay response.
To submit an application, connect with your agency first to verify that your sending agency is pre-qualified. Contact email@example.com for additional questions about eligibility requirements.
Evangelical mission sending organizations meeting the theological and financial accountability standards set forth by Liberty may apply to be part of this program by submitting an application. Organizational applications are evaluated and approved on a regular basis, usually it takes 3-6 months until a decision is made. Please email LUServeInternational@liberty.edu to receive more information and an application.
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.
If you would like to receive an application contact LU Serve International via email at LoanRepayment@Liberty.edu.
