Biola’s new and continuing students are facing additional financial needs due to the economic hardships caused by COVID-19. Help close the gap for our students this fall semester with a gift to Biola’s Hope in Crisis Fund. Every gift will be matched, up $1 million, through June 30 for students in need.
Biola remains fiscally strong in the face of this crisis, and also remains committed to student affordability for the fall semester. We are asking for your help so students can rest assured their scholarship aid will remain intact. If you are interested in additional information about Biola University's response to the current nationwide health emergency, please visit our coronavirus update page.
Access to Biola’s world-class, biblically centered education has prepared thousands of students to impact the world for Christ over Biola’s 112 year history – students like Josh and Danette.
Danette supports her aunt and grandmother through her campus job while pursuing her dream of a Biola education. With the impact of COVID-19, Danette has relied on the support of the Biola community to keep her household fed.
A semester away from graduation, Josh and his family have been hit especially hard. Due to the economic shutdown, Josh’s dad temporarily closed the family business, while his mom, a nurse, continues to work on the front lines to protect and care for the community. In order to not only put food on their own table but also on the tables of their employees, Josh’s family is pouring out their limited resources to help others.
As finances tighten because of COVID-19, students need additional financial support to help them close the gap for the fall semester. Through the new Hope in Crisis Fund, Biola is rallying around students facing the economic impact of COVID-19 as we help them finish their Biola degrees.
We believe every student should have access to a world-class biblically centered and academically rich education. To help make this a reality, we launched The Biola Fund For All Students. Each year alumni, students, faculty, staff, family and friends join Biola through their support For All Students.
Biola students are world changers. They graduate and step into the world on a mission to make an impact for Christ from Hollywood to Mozambique as screenwriters, researchers, NGO leaders, teachers, pastors, businessmen and women, linguists and doctors. And it all starts here.
Providing assistance to students in need who face significant financial challenges. Gifts to the Biola Fund help students achieve their dream of earning a Biola degree while equipping them for a lifetime of Christ-honoring impact.
Providing industry-leading classrooms and technologies, living spaces, learning and study environments, community gathering spaces and campus grounds to support the educational experience of our 93-acre campus which is home to more than 6,000 students.
Providing opportunities for faculty research, biblically centered scholarship and the development of new academic programs.
Providing students with enrichment opportunities to help them grow and thrive as they pursue God’s calling on their lives.
Did you know that publications like U.S. News and World Report consider alumni support and participation in the Biola Fund when determining Biola’s national college ranking each year? High rankings help us attract the best students and faculty in the world.
Through your generous annual gift of $1,000 or more to the Biola Fund you become a President’s Circle partner, and join a special group of more than 1,300 supporters who are committed to praying for President Corey and helping Biola to provide a world-class biblically centered education for all students.
The Biola Fund makes it possible for students to experience the best of Biola — chapel programs, world-renowned biblically centered academic programs, beautiful campus and facilities, research opportunities and spiritually enriching extra-curricular programing.
This academic year, the university has stepped out in faith to raise $3.5 million for the Biola Fund. These funds will help provide an average of $3,900 in critically needed scholarships, programs and services to each of our undergraduate students — an amount that otherwise would have been passed onto each student in the form of a tuition increase.

“I know without a doubt my education — in and outside the classroom — has equipped me to pursue my Ph.D. in clinical psychology. Researching alongside award-winning faculty as an undergraduate student has not only prepared me academically, but grown my love of God and his people.”
Lauren came to Biola to be equipped by top-tier faculty to study and practice psychology through a biblical worldview. She will graduate in May as a published researcher in a study funded by Oxford University. Today, she is preparing to begin a Ph.D. program in clinical psychology, where she will continue to impact the world for Christ.
