  • Sarang Scholarship
    Check out the Kingdom Dreamer Scholarship from Sa-Rang Community Church in Anaheim
  • Fast Web
    Possibly the best database available. Updated most frequently. Some applications can be completed online.
  • Foreign Born
    Provides tips and links specifically for foreign students.
  • IEFA
    Search by field of study. Easy to locate possible scholarships without having to supply any personal information.
  • EduPass
    Uses fastweb's search engine, but it does have links to orientation information that may be helpful.
  • IIE
    Does not have very many scholarship offers. Focus is more on student exchange programs. Nevertheless worth checking into once in a while.
  • Evangelical Theological Society
    This is a scholarship for participation in the Evangelical Theological Society; it is for graduate students.
  • Rotary International
    Get connected to a local Rotary club to see what kind of scholarships they offer.

Research Options from Your Country of Citizenship

  • Contact embassies and government officials
  • Get on as many email lists as you can — who knows when they will announce scholarship options!
