STUDENTS WHO RECEIVE FREE TUITION
All students preparing exclusively for church work or Christian
service are given free tuition in Abilene Christian College. We feel
that those giving their whole time to gospel work are now altogether
too few, and that such people need to be encouraged and given every
possible advantage. We have numerous courses designd for this particular
group of students; others for them are a part of the regular
college work and count for college credits.
The management feels, however, that all students that take advantage
of free tuition are thus indebted to the institution to do their
best work, in school and later. The school requires that any such
students who later give up the exclusively Christian work they have
had in mind, and who take up secular work, must pay the tuition that
has been given them. Of course, the character and reputation of the
students given this advantage must be kept above reproach. The management
must feel that the student has the possibilities of making
good in the work contemplated.
All students receiving free tuition on this score are required to
take one special course each term in addition to the Bible class that is
required of all students. They must select some definite schedule leading
to certification and take courses required for it as they are offered
from term to term.
These students must also be willing to take the lead in religious
activities of the school, particularly mission study, young people's
meetings, and Bible classes on Sunday.
Students receiving free tuition must make grades averaging B or
above, counting all their courses, and must pursue at least twelve
hours of regular work.
To assist us in preparing men for teaching in one department or
another, we are beginning this year the plan of granting fellowships
to those graduates who prove themselves worthy and able to become
leaders in Christian thought and life. The fellowship amounts to
$325. It is issued in vouchers that are accepted for board, tuition, and

,from Christians interested in seeing a strong leadership developed.
