In response to increased financial burdens on students and their families, Appalachian Bible College is covering 65% of Room & Board for the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 academic years for ALL eligible full-time residential students! Not only are we planning for on-campus classes, but we are committed to helping students and families through this unprecedented time.
How it Works for 2021-2022**
If your Financial Aid Package has less than $5,570 (65% of Room & Board for the school year) in Institutional Aid (excluding Church/Ministry Matching Scholarship), the Servant’s Support Scholarship will be added in the amount of the difference: $2,785 per semester.
This aid is in addition to any federal aid, state aid, outside aid/scholarships, chapel awards, and/or Church/Ministry Matching Scholarships that you may receive. If your institutional aid is more than $5,570, no additional Servant’s Support Scholarship will be added. With a little bit of work, you have the opportunity to completely cover your school bill for this year!
** We are excited to share that due to some additional funding through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund, we will be able to provide more assistance than previously offered through the Servant’s Support Scholarship for the 2021-2022 school year. Students can apply at abc.edu/covidgrant or contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.
