A new scholarship program will be offered to certain students coming to Ambassador College. It is called the Regional Scholarship Program. Each Regional Director (or Area Coordinator in the U.S.A. and Canada) can nominate the top applicants in his region/area for a one year full-tuition scholarship. Each Regional Director/Area Coordinator can make his choice based upon recommendations from the pastors of his region/area.

The person each pastor nominates should be the most outstanding prospective Ambassador College student in his area. We are interested in those students who excel not only in academics, but also have qualities of leadership and character, have a balanced personality and record of participation in various activities. The applicant would be expected to apply for admission through! the Admissions Office and meet all named academic standards. Consider also the financial need of your applicant. The person you nominate to your Regional Director/Area Coordinator should have potential, if the opportunity should arise, to be used in the Work in the future.

If you have anyone in your area who meets these qualifications please send a letter to your Director/Coordinator stating the qualifications of your applicant. The top applicants will then be forwarded to the College.

By the way, the next edition of the Worldwide News will carry an article on this new scholarship program, so be aware that you may be approached about it.

Also, I'd like to bring to your attention the fact that all applicants to the College who have been involved in Y.O.U. are being considered by both the Financial Aids Office and the Y.O.U. office for several Y.O.U. one-year full-tuition scholarships which will be awarded in July. Although this year the candidates are being selected without having to apply, please let your youth know that they will be able to apply for this scholarship beginning with the 1980-81 school year. The qualifications are the same as for the Regional Scholarship Program. In addition, we look at Y.O.U. involvement — offices held number of times SEP attended, talent and athletic contest involvement, Y.O.U. National Conference attendees, etc.

In all of these programs, one of the most important considerations is the minisLeria1 evaluation. Your input is often the deciding factor on scholarship awards, as it is on college acceptance. Please do not feel this paper work is a waste of time. We rely on it heavily.

Thank you for the work you are doing to prepare the youth for college. If you have any questions about scholarship programs please call me at (213) 577-5520.
