TUITION AND SCHOLARSHIPS

Tuition for the Downline Southwest Georgia Institute is $1000, which can be paid monthly, per semester or all at once. The Institute can provide a limited amount of financial assistance to those in need.  Also, if you are on staff with a church or para-church ministry, please contact Chris Baker for information about a ministry discount.

Requirements for financial assistance eligibility:

  • Formally request financial aid from your local church and/or church home.
  • If you work with a ministry, formally request financial aid from that ministry.
  • Send out a minimum of five support letters (Downline can provide a sample support letter upon request)
  • Independently provide a portion of the financial amount

Tuition not only helps you be more personally invested in your own training, but you get to be part of helping Downline SWGA train other disciple-makers in Albany.
