Appalachian Bible College offers scholarship responds to pandemic

MOUNT HOPE, WV (WOAY) – In response to increased financial burdens on students and their families, Appalachian Bible College has committed to covering 65% of Room & Board for the 2020-2021 academic year. Called the Servant’s Support Scholarship, this new aid is in addition to federal and state aid and outside scholarships.

“During this time when our students have faced disruption to their educational pursuits, we wanted to provide a generous encouragement to them,” says Dr. Daniel Anderson, President of Appalachian Bible College.

“Our world urgently needs what we are doing as ABC prepares servants to share the Gospel and strengthen the Church. We are passionate about assisting and equipping students to capture this moment in history… because life is for service.”

To be eligible for the Servant’s Support Scholarship, an undergraduate student must be full-time, residential, and degree-seeking. Complete information can be found at abc.edu/sss.

As West Virginia’s only accredited Bible college, Appalachian Bible College has been training men and women to serve in church-related ministries since 1950. ABC offers Bible Certificate, Associate of Arts, Bachelor of Arts, and Master of Arts programs, including online courses. The campus is located just north of Beckley, while an additional location serves inmates within Mount Olive Correctional Complex. Learn more at ABC.edu.
