9-4-13 Pacific Union College Offers 100% Free Tuition Partnership
.
 
 
Continuing its mission of providing an excellent, Christ-centered learning environment for each student, Pacific Union College is expanding its support of Adventist higher education by offering a 100% Free Tuition Partnership for eligible recipients who receive tuition assistance through a parent’s service to the Seventh-day Adventist Church. With this initiative, children of pastors, teachers, and other denominational employees have exceptional access to an educational setting that prepares them to be creative Christian problem-solvers and servants through degrees in fields ranging from biology to the creative arts.
 
“Pacific Union College is committed to supporting the Adventist educational system and preparing a new generation of leaders for the Adventist church,” said Jennifer Tyner, vice president for enrollment management. “Our new tuition partnership is another way to deepen that commitment by assisting families who have dedicated their careers to the Adventist mission through denominational service.”
 
The new free tuition partnership joins other initiatives that support the mission of Adventist education. The Adventist Mission Scholarship awards $3,000 per year to future pastors and teachers who are called to serve others in these important roles. The Summer Ministry Scholarship supports students who dedicate their summers to literature evangelism or working at an Adventist summer camp by matching 100% of their earnings, up to $3,000.
 
In a higher education landscape full of financial aid challenges, these awards provide additional opportunities for young Adventists to receive an education in an environment that supports and strengthens their faith and values. During the 2012-2013 school year, the college awarded over $11 million in scholarships, grants and discounts to the 1,600-person student body.
