Student Grants

 

We believe the cost of private education should not hinder students from applying or being accepted into our program. It is our desire to work together with families on affording tuition, so we offer financial grants. With the help of donations given by generous alumni and friends, approximately half of the student body received grants this year. FastApply for Student Grants!Sign up to volunteer!

 

Who should apply for aid?

FAST has found that a family’s income is the best indicator of need. Thus, they encourage families to apply if their household income is less than $85,000. Consideration is given to families with multiple students enrolled in Christian schools. For further information on your family’s eligibility in receiving a grant, we invite you to contact our Admissions Coordinator, Deb Louthan, at 503-363-2000 or dlouthan@westernmennoniteschool.org.

How do I apply?

To apply for financial assistance, please visit Independent School Management Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST). We have teamed up with FAST to aid us in the process of dispersing financial grants. You will be required to pay a small service fee. If you incur problems during your online application process, please contact FAST’s 24 hour customer helpline at 877-326-3278. Following your online submission, any required documents needing to be mailed to FAST will be listed. Your official request for grant aid will be complete once you submit the online application and send in FAST’s required documents.

Priority consideration

For priority consideration, we must receive grant reports from FAST by April 15. All grant applications meeting this deadline will be collected for review, with the awarding of grants to begin the first week of May. (No grants will be awarded before May 1.) Grant reports received after April 15 will be processed as they are received, and grants will be awarded as long as funds are available.
