TABOR 20 scholarship targets high school seniors in MB churches

College announces new scholarship worth $112,000 over four years

Tabor College is the Mennonite Brethren institution located in Hillsboro, Kansas.

Tabor College is offering a unique scholarship worth $112,000 over four years for high school students graduating in 2020 who attend Mennonite Brethren churches.

The new “TABOR 20” scholarship will provide $28,000 per year. It can be renewed all four years and will be awarded to a minimum of 30 students.

“Tabor College continues to provide the kind of student experience that not only provides an outstanding education, but also offers an advantage for students who qualify,” says Rusty Allen, Tabor’s executive vice-president of operations.

Allen adds, “While we believe we have an excellent student experience to offer students, we believe they have much to offer the Tabor campus as well. We believe in the potential of our MB youth.”

Prospective students can apply by downloading the free “Discover Tabor” app, scrolling to the TABOR 20 graphic and clicking it, then filling out and submitting the form.

Once submitted, Tabor’s admissions office will get in touch with each applicant to talk about next steps. The steps include completing the application process for admission to Tabor, writing a one-page essay on a topic provided by admissions, scheduling a campus visit and having an interview with a TABOR 20 selection team member while visiting campus.

Applicants selected for a TABOR 20 scholarship would owe approximately $12,000 during the student’s freshman year.

“Any outside scholarships, grants or loans will be applied to reduce the amount owed,” Allen says. “We want MB youth at Tabor College. I encourage all of them to apply for TABOR 20 soon.”
