Tuition Relief Scholarship Available To Undergrads!

Breaking News for MBC Undergrads

tightwalletA Tough Economy

Multnomah's leadership, under the direction of President Dan Lockwood, got together to discuss what they'd been hearing from students and parents: "Help! This economy makes going to college more difficult!"

Doing Something About It 

As of today, Multnomah is offering a "Tuition Relief Scholarship" this year for our Bible College students.

It's Simple
To earn the Tuition Relief Scholarship, students must be enrolled for a minimum of 14 credits in a Bible College undergraduate program offered on the Portland, Oregon campus. If a student enrolls in 14 credits, they will then get every additional credit up to 17 free - for a total savings of up to $1500 per semester or a total of up to $3,000 for the year.

Simpler Still
This means that if you enrolled in 15 credits, you only pay for 14. If you enroll in 16 credits, you only pay for 14. If you enroll in 17 credits, you only pay for 14! That's the equivalent of a whole class. Or $1500. Per Semester.

I don't know about you, but getting done with college faster and doing it with an extra $3000 sounds like a pretty good deal to me. (As if being the lowest priced around wasn't already a great value...but I digress).

The Official Details

There are some conditions, so be sure to Read the Offical Press Release.

What Is This Kigali Kollection?

Congratulations to the Kigali Kollection Committee on reaching their goal of collecting 2009 books for Kigali Bible College in Rwanda, Africa. During Spring break, the team recorded books for a total of 25 hours.  At 1:22 p.m. on Friday, March 27, Ali Newby was privileged to record the 2009th book.

Backgroundcharles2

In the summer of 2008, Africa New Life Ministries (founded by MBS graduate Charles Buregeya) was awarded a grant to start a Bible training school in Kigali, Rwanda. Upon hearing the news, a group of Multnomah students pulled together to create a library for the school-the largest theological library in Rwanda. The team set a goal of collecting 2009 books by graduation day in May.

MU Students Commit

Multnomah students were given the options to be book donators, book collectors (at their churches), book recorders, or "BOB" givers (Buck One Book - which means that you donate $1 to Debbie Chin in upper Sutcliffe). Every Monday, the team kept the school updated with a collection report along with a countdown of how many days were left until the deadline. Presently, 38 more days are left.

Help Meet A New Goal!

With the goal of 2009 books already attained, the Kigali Kollection Committee will reconvene to recalculate a new goal. Presently, the team has recorded 2,028 usable books. So if you have started on your spring cleaning and have books you don't need, play a part in building up the largest theological library in Rwanda and donate those books of yours.

3 Ways To Get Involved

  1. Buck-One-Book donation at the Mitchell Library
  2. Drop off books at Roger Trautman's office in the Seminary
  3. Drop off books at Garry Friesen's office in Sutcliffe Hall
