What We Fund-ABF Programs
We provide loans and grants for Christian Scientists attending college and university, graduate school, and vocational school. Most students receive a combination of loan and grant based on the student’s and their family’s financial need. Learn more about financial aid for College, Graduate School & Vocational Education.
We provide grants for students taking classes at one of ABF’s approved partners located in the United States and Europe. You can find the list of ABF’s approved training partners here: 16 Christian Science nursing facilities . Once you are admitted for training at one of our partners’ facilities, you can apply to us for financial assistance. Learn more about financial aid for Christian Science Nurses Training.
We no longer provide grants for language education, per se. If a student wishes to study for a degree in a language, that would fall under ABF’s North American college funding.
ABF provides merit grants to college students who work as interns at the First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, MA, Christian Science Youth Camps, and the Longyear Museum, also in Boston. You can learn more about these internships from each institution or camp as well as from the ABF Career Alliance.
We provide grants to students who are selected for the U.S. Military Chaplain program by The Mother Church and earn a master’s degree from Boston University School of Theology. Learn more about the Christian Science Military Chaplain program.
We provide funding for the National Leadership Council (NLC), a four-year servant leadership program for high school students which is run by DiscoveryBound. Learn more about the National Leadership Council.
We provide grants for students attending college, graduate school, and vocational school in several African and European countries. Learn more about our international programs.
