With programs in the United States and Indonesia, Corban is continuing its global outreach with its strong commitment to promote Christian higher education in the Global South. The University is exploring other opportunities in Asia and Africa with its mission: “To educate Christians who will make a difference in the world for Jesus Christ.”
Corban will start accepting applications this week and allow students from Africa to start their studies as early as January 2017. The scholarship offer will extend to both online and residential studies on campus in Salem, Oregon. The initial 100 scholarships will be for all four years of undergraduate study and cover between $7,500 to $15,000 a year in tuition, depending on whether the student chooses to study online or become a residential student in Salem, Oregon.
“Our goal was to make Christian higher education attainable for highly motivated young people at a price point comparable to what families were already investing into their children’s university education,” said Janine Allen, Associate Provost for Global Engagement at Corban.
Dr. Matt Lucas, Provost of Corban, is “excited about this opportunity to work with TEN to further the gospel in Africa and prepare the next generation of leaders to bring positive change to their churches, communities, and countries.”
Martin Deacon, Chief Growth Officer of TEN, stated, “The partnership has been in development for the last several months. Senior administration and faculty from Corban introduced the vision for the Corban online degree program to more than 100 church leaders from 20 African countries in September at the TEN campus in Africa. Responding to their enthusiasm, we decided to introduce a bold scholarship program to attract high potential young people with a calling to serve God in the sphere of ministry, education, business, medicine, science or psychology.”
TEN founder Dr. Bruce Wilkinson commented, “Corban is a top-notch educational institution sharing our values and passion for global Christian education that is personally transformational and professionally competent, going far beyond traditional college outcomes. The TEN scholarship program is a game-changer for African students and makes a stable, quality education viable with an unprecedented scholarship program.”
