    I would assume that most of the raised capital will be used to fund help students so that they do not have to graduate with a load of student loan debt. Going to their first calls, many pastors find themselves serving congregations that cannot afford a full time minister, and therefore, pastors cannot pay off their student loan debt. They are forced to take on jobs at Walmart or Big Lots to pay off these loans.

    I would encourage the seminaries to consider scholarship support based on maintaining a certain GPA (at least a 3.5) to encourage high quality scholarship and skill building.
