Bible Institute Financial Aid
External scholarships are awarded from organizations not necessarily
affiliated with Moody Bible Institute. These funds are awarded based on
academic achievement, talent or other criteria. Scholarships usually do not
need to be repaid.
External Scholarship Searches
External scholarship searches require you to complete a short
survey. Most scholarship searches will then match prospective donors up
with prospective students. You may then be asked to complete an additional
scholarship application for that specific scholarship. As a rule, we
encourage students to avoid searches that charge a fee.
