Most Emmaus Bible College Scholarship funds are available through the kindness and generosity of donors. Funding levels can thus vary. Some scholarships may not have sufficient funds to award any given year. These scholarships are only available to assist students attending Emmaus Bible College.
Most Emmaus scholarships are competitive. A Financial Aid Committee reviews applications and awards funds based on the scholarship criteria and the merits of the applicant.
You do not have to wait to be admitted to Emmaus in order to apply for scholarships. You can apply for any Emmaus scholarships for which you are eligible while you are in the process of obtaining admission to the College.
