Adventist Mission Scholarship in Education

What Is The Adventist Mission Scholarship in Education?

The Adventist Mission Scholarship in Education is a $3,000 per year, or $1,000 per quarter, scholarship for students who declare their sincere intent to become a preschool, elementary, or secondary teacher, and who actively pursue an early childhood degree or teaching credential program while enrolled at Pacific Union College.

The scholarship is available to incoming freshman and transfer students, to PUC students who decide on a teaching career sometime after their freshman year, and to post-baccalaureate candidates entering the non-degree 5th year credential program or the Masters of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) degree program. It is renewable on a yearly basis as long as recipients continue to meet the conditions of the scholarship. It is applied directly to the recipients tuition account on a quarterly basis unless the scholarship is withdrawn by the Education Department.
