Scholarships in 2024

  • In Hungary, Monika cares for her husband and four children, works two jobs, and still maintains a 4.0 gpa at Hungarian Adventist Technological College. Teachers commend her excellent leadership skills and active participation at church. Thanks to loyal donors, it was a joy to give $1,000 toward tuition. Monika is an excellent example of the high caliber of students you are helping.
  • Nuam, a student at Myanmar Union Adventist Seminary, hopes to begin her last semester of studies. An outstanding student, she received awards for her poetry, writing, and academic excellence. Her teachers commend her a a "leader in the community," one who is "eager to learn, to improve herself, and to spread the Adventist message. Described as "disciplined, an excellent organizer who communicates well, patient, always positive and one who listens to others ideas." But she does not have the $300 tuition. Teaching piano and tutoring enabled Nuam to save just $15. Your gift of $285 will help her graduate.
  • After teaching for 15 years, and being recognized as a model teacher, Tatu headed back to college. At the same time she became Women's Ministries director for the West Ethiopia Union Mission. Her purpose in obtaining a second college degree, says Tatu, is to increase her knowledge of the Bible so she can better share the Gospel as she serves women, especially young women, in her country. She is recognized as academically brilliant and also highly dedicated to serving the church. Caring for her husband and four children while leading the WM department, being involved at church, and maintaining excellent grades, Tatu is truly a noble woman of God. Your gift of $50 a month will help Tatu and other dedicated women, receive the training they long for.

Funds for Scholarships

The royalties of the women's daily devotional book series published since 1993 have helped support the worldwide scholarship program. Book royalties alone are not enough to fund the scholarships. Personal donations and fundraising projects are vital to keeping this program alive.

Special Project in 2019 and 2020

Thank you! We succeeded in raising $20,000 for Romania by December 31, 2020.


Often marginalized, more than 70% of Europe's Roma (gypsy) population live in dire poverty and become the victims of discrimination. Our goal was to raise $20,000 to help give gypsy women in Romania an education.

Nine years ago, Lina, a gypsy woman of Romania, was illiterate. Yet in just eight years she earned a master's degree in theology in Spain. During these long years in her course of studies, she received a scholarship award that helped boost her confidence and give her encouragement to continue her education. Lina serves in a church she helped evangelize. She teaches Bible classes, provides clothing to the poor, and helps wherever needed. She prays for an opportunity to serve as pastor among other gypsies. She speaks several languages, including Romani, the language of gypsies around the world. Presently, she is learning yet another language: English.
