Student Support Scholarships

Scholarship Value: $1,500
Awards Available: 5

Student Support Scholarships are awarded to assist students with tuition and books and are available to part-time as well as full-time students. The scholarships are funded by numerous small donations that many Thetans voluntarily add to their international dues each year.


Each scholarship consists of a payment of $1,500, which is disbursed directly to an accredited college or university on behalf of the recipient.
