Under the Missionary Scholarship, the University will provide a full-tuition scholarship of up to $80,000, disbursed over the four consecutive years of a bachelor’s degree (approximately $20,000 per year less other federal, state, and Liberty institutional gift assistance). Essentially, Liberty will take care of the cost of tuition for missionary kids (MKs), leaving parents to cover only the cost of room, board, and fees.
To be eligible, students must be U.S. Citizens and children of missionaries serving on a foreign mission field outside of the United States through one of Liberty’s listed strategic missions partners; apply for standard aid through the FAFSA and VTAG application as applicable; new undergraduate resident students; beginning first-time enrollment on or after the Spring 2014 semester; maintaining full-time consecutive enrollment; and maintaining satisfactory academic progress.
Please know that our commitment to missionary kids is stronger than ever. Liberty’s commitment to missions support and real options for our students is unwavering. Between Liberty’s loan forgiveness program for missionary graduates and this new program for MKs, it’s possible that no other university in Christian history has provided such generous support to missionary families. This makes us very proud and should make you feel like Liberty is committed to helping you reach the world.
To apply for this scholarship, students may obtain an application online from in the Forms Library at this link.

Here at MTC, we are to be involved in ministry within the local community. Bree is currently working with a local teen pregnancy center and I am working with our local YoungLife chapter. We are both additionally involved in a youth group made up of the high school Missionary Kids whose parents work at the MTC. What a cool way to get into the community here and have a chance to put what we learn into practice!
