Scholarships / Financial Aid
Tuition assistance and work study scholarships are available, but are limited based on current funding (we are a nonprofit organization that receives our funding primarily through gifts from individual donors. We do not own the rights to C.S. Lewis’ works.)
To apply, please email a resume/c.v. and a letter explaining the following to jbohnert at cslewis.org: 1) why you wish to attend, 2) what you hope to gain from your attendance, and 3) why you need financial aid to attend. Your materials will be reviewed by the scholarship committee, who will select the recipients from the pool of applicants. Awards will be made in two rounds. The first round of applications is due by August 20, 2019. The second round of applications is due by September 20, 2019.
While a higher priority is given to certain groups (faculty, currently enrolled full-time students, missionaries, those working in ministry), anyone with need may apply. Note: Scholarships and tuition assistance only go towards the tuition portion of registration and not room/board.
