you cannot pay even the lowest monthly payment and/or afford the degree
program administration fee through a grant, then you may want to
consider applying for a Pool of Bethesda Scholarship.
Students may only be enrolled in the Opportunity Scholarships - Pool of Bethesda Program if they have:
- Completed at least 15 credit hours of college-level course work at Christian Leaders Institute. This shows Christian Leaders Institute and potential sponsors that these students would most likely be able to successfully complete a degree.
- Maintained a GPA of 2.5 or higher. Students are also advised to complete the "Basic Writing (2 credits)" course or College Writing (3 credits) first. We require you to complete an application letter that will potentially be given to our review committee and/or potential sponsors. Not only that but when you are matched with a sponsor and subsequently complete the exit paper in the degree program, your exit paper may be sent to your sponsor to allow them to follow your progress.
Enrollment in this Opportunity Scholarship Program does not guarantee you will be able to receive a scholarship. The enrollment period for this program is one year (365 days). If a student is not able to complete the assignments or CLI is not able to match the student to a scholarship sponsor within the year period, the student will be automatically unenrolled and will need to prayerfully consider re-entering in the Pool of Bethesda Scholarship Program again to request the Pool of Bethesda Scholarship. So far we have funded most scholarships!
