The Albert Baker Fund (ABF) supports Christian Scientists enrolled in college, graduate school, or vocational training leading to a degree or certificate from an accredited institution or program.

Financial aid awards consist of a grant-and-loan package to bridge a gap in a student’s overall education financial plan. The average grant-and-loan award is approximately $4,500, based primarily on the applicant’s need, with merit a key factor. Students may re-apply for funding each academic year.

Applications for funding can be submitted at any time, during the year, however it is wise to submit at least six weeks before payment is due to your school.
