Tuition Assistance

Tuition Assistance Philosophy

Mindful, generous donors contribute tuition assistance funds making them available to qualified Summit Ministries Student Conference registrants through an application process. Tuition assistance applicants are considered according to their own financial ability to invest in the experience, as well as their commitment to participating in the Summit program and activities.


The amount of Tuition Assistance awarded is based on the demonstrated financial need as determined by an assessment of confidential financial information the family submits through the Summit Tuition Assistance Application Process, as well as answers from the student applicant expressing their interest in attending. If a family is awarded Tuition Assistance, the funds are applied only towards tuition. All financial information, application information, and documents are kept in confidence and will not be shared outside of Summit. Summit expects that each recipient will also keep the amount of their award private and confidential. Awards are not given for academic, athletic, or artistic merit, nor are student loans or full tuition awards available. The Summit Tuition Assistance Committee reviews tuition assistance requests following the decision to admit the student to a Summit Student Conference based upon his/her registration application, the family/student applicant has signed and agreed to Summit’s terms and conditions, and the non-refundable deposit of $195 has been paid via Summit’s online registration process. When these steps are completed please email us or call us at 719-685-9103.

Applications are considered in the order they are received, so feedback may take up to six weeks. Please note: If your registration is paid in full, no tuition assistance will be available.
