Church Three-Way Matching Scholarships: Frequently a student’s home church will provide a Church Three-Way scholarship. The Northern California Conference of SDAs and Rio Lindo will match the church’s scholarship payment dollar for dollar, up to certain maximum amounts, depending on the student’s grade level. Students are required to work to receive the scholarship and matching amounts. Families are required to complete the FACTS Managment Company financial aid application.

Travel Allowance: Students who live in Southern California or out of state may request up to $500 student account credit  by providing receipts for travel related expenses.

Work Program: Jobs on campus are available for students needing assistance with tuition. Students are paid California minimum wage and all earnings are credited to the student’s account. Limited summer work is available for students.

Sponsors: Families may allow sponsors to assist with tuition costs. Sponsors work directly with the families to determine a monthly payment amount.

Literature Evangelism and Summer Camp Matching Scholarships: Students who work in a SDA Conference sponsored literature evangelism or summer camp program immediately preceding the current school year are eligible for a matching scholarship up to $1,000 for the school year. A payment to the school and an earnings statement are required to be eligible for the matching scholarship.

Rio Lindo Financial Aid: All families who request financial aid are required to complete the FACTS Management Company financial aid application. Once a student is accepted to Rio Lindo, and the FACTS financial aid application becomes accessible, families are encouraged to complete the application timely. FACTS analyzes the application and evaluates the family’s financial position. The Rio Lindo scholarship committee determines financial assistance scholarship amounts.
