Scholarships, Grants & Loans


The Esperanza College Grant is unique to Esperanza College. It is one of the many commitments we’ve made to ensure that a private Christian college education is accessible and affordable to all of our students. This grant alone covers over half the tuition for 100% of full-time students attending Esperanza College, regardless of their financial status. How can you receive it? Apply, be admitted, and decide to be a student at Esperanza College.


A limited number of scholarships are available for incoming students who plan to participate in Young Life leadership as part of their college experience. The amount a student is awarded will be determined based on the number of students selected and the amount of funding available. All scholarships are renewable up to four semesters if a student continues to meet the requirements. The application deadline is May 1 for students starting in the fall semester and October 15 for students starting in the spring semester.

Our Student Service Finance Representatives will explain to you everything involved when taking out a loan. It may be better for you to accept an educational loan from the federal government via the FAFSA than to go down to your local bank. By completing your FAFSA you may be eligible for some of the best student loans available with some of the lowest interest rates.

Remember, there is good debt and bad debt. Receiving a college education, getting a better job, and becoming self-sufficient are good reasons for taking out that low-interest college loan.
