Mennonite Brethren students benefit from new scholarship program

A new scholarship program at Fresno Pacific University reaches out to students from the Mennonite Brethren tradition.

Beginning in the fall of 2001, up to $7,450 per year in aid will be available to qualified students entering the traditional undergraduate college. Participants must be members of a Mennonite Brethren congregation, or consider such a congregation their home church. Freshmen must have a high school grade-point average of at least 3.1 and transfers must have a GPA of at least 2.4.

FPU scholarships and federal financial aid (for U.S. students) may count toward the total, but loans will not be included. California residents with a Cal Grant receive a minimum of $14,900, which is full tuition for 2001-2002.

Contact the FPU College Admissions Office for an application and further details at (telephone) 1-800-660-6089, (e-mail) or (mail) 1717 S. Chestnut Avenue, Fresno, CA 93702.

Fresno Pacific University is an accredited Christian university. Located on a 42-acre, park-like campus in southeast Fresno, FPU has an enrollment of 1,800 students -- half graduate and half undergraduate. The university also enrolls 12,000 students annually in its professional development studies programs offered locally and throughout the world.
