Not without you
The Biola Fund makes it possible for students to experience the best of Biola—chapel programs, world-renowned biblically centered academic programs, research opportunities and spiritually enriching extra-curricular programming. The Biola Fund is helping to make this life changing education possible in the midst of the current economic hardship many students are facing. This past academic year, the Biola Fund also supported the extensive safety measures and protocols for our student's phased return to campus as we worked diligently to minimize the risk of COVID-19 spread.
We are deeply grateful for your support!

We are committed to doing everything in our power to bring these remarkable young men and women back to campus. And it is happening! We welcomed back over 450 students in recent weeks and we hope to begin the next phase soon with hundreds more, but we cannot do it without you.
Biola’s leadership has identified $3.7 million in new unplanned expenses to cover costs of our COVID-19 Student Grant, new classroom technologies, COVID-19 testing supplies, sanitization stations and remote workforce stipends. All are essential elements of reopening campus to our students.
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.
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.

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.
