The Walt Cochran International Endowed Scholarship Fund provides financial assistance to train and equip international students, from outside the United Stated and Canada, who are committed to returning to their home countries to share and spread the Gospel. Secondarily, this scholarship may assist students who are pursuing full-time mission service in foreign countries, outside the United States and Canada.
“I came to seminary with a background in mechanical and aerospace engineering; however, I had interests in learning more about the Bible and missions. Though I had imagined myself in a supporting role to mission work through financial support and prayer, God had another plan for me. After graduation, I plan to go into the mission field where I hope to use both my engineering background and my seminary education. Thank you for your generosity through the Walt Cochran Scholarship that has helped make it possible for me to pursue and receive education at Denver Seminary.”
