Covenant Clergy Families

You Should Know
- These grants are awarded 50 percent for each regular semester that the student is enrolled full time (12 hours of credit or more).
- Summer school tuition is already deeply discounted for all students and regular scholarships or grants are not applicable during summer school.
- While 80 percent of North Park graduates complete their studies in four years, these grants will continue if a student requires an additional semester or two to complete their degree.
- North Park scholarships and grants remain constant for the duration of a student's studies. In other words, the $2,500 per year clergy dependent grant will remain constant even if new students who qualify for the grant two years from now are awarded a different amount. This is consistent with financial aid policy and practices at institutions throughout the U.S.
- North Park scholarships and grants that a student may receive during an academic year cannot exceed tuition for the respective academic year.
- Covenant Camp Grant: A $750 award to current students who have completed at least the previous year as a North Park student and who work at a Covenant camp the following summer. The grant is applied to the student bill in the following academic year. These students are expected to be ambassadors for North Park during their summer camp employment and to be exceptional members of the camp staff of which they are a part. Most Covenant camps visit campus early in the second semester to recruit summer workers. Students must attend a brief initial orientation and training session in April before the end of the semester to qualify for this grant.
