Scholarship Fund for New College

Sophomores Julia and Tiffany of B.C., Canada, don't know how much longer they can afford to be here -- whether a year, a semester, or even one more term. Without being American citizens, it is even more difficult to raise funds since they can't get a job here. There were never two sisters who were more passionate to be learning or eager to be growing in the wisdom and knowledge of God. They speak enthusiastically of what they are reading in Homer's Odyssey, practicing in Art, or studying in Euclid's Elements. They have hearts that love the Lord and long to know Him more. God led them here and we know and trust that He will keep them here for just as long as He wants.

As Dean of the college, I hear a lot about the personal and family financial struggles. Several of these families and students are dealing with health issues, the economy, loss of jobs, etc. Students are working hard -- as much as 30+ hours a week -- some have had to go part-time in order to pay for school, and some prospective students are waiting on word of need-based aid to determine whether they can attend at all. But they work hard because they want to be here; they eagerly to desire to pursue wisdom and to pour themselves into their classes, their readings, and their community.

Although tuition is low, many still need assistance.

We hope to raise $30,000 for our need-based scholarship fund to assist these students, provide opportunity for spiritual formation, and send these students out as salt and light into the world around them as ambassadors of Christ and the gospel.

Will you please prayerfully consider helping students like Julia and Tiffany and others?

New College Franklin is a four-year classical Christian liberal arts school designed to disciple students with discussion-based education and mentoring for the purpose of growth in wisdom and missional living. We desire that students be formed more in the image of Christ, take up their cross daily, and follow Him in the callings and service for which they have been prepared.
