Link Year's scholarship program is offered to prospective students with financial, spiritual and emotional needs. Link Year’s mission is to develop dynamic Christian leaders through life-changing experiences, Godly relationships and spiritual training. It is our goal to help as many students as possible. Please start the Link Year application process at the same time as applying for a scholarship.
 Once your application is processed you will receive an e-mail of your scholarship amount and balance due once the scholarship is applied. Please allow at least 7-10 business days for processing.
Applying for scholarship assistance does not register a student or guarantee the student a spot. Once you are notified and accept a scholarship, you will be able to register. Print out scholarship application here: 
* Unfortunately, we no longer have scholarships available for the 2014-2015 year, they have all been filled. 

Our Partnership with JBU

We are proud to partner with John Brown University as they are ranked as No. 1 “Best Value” in the U.S. News and World Report 2013 Best Colleges Edition among its peers in the South.

Overall, JBU was ranked as the No. 2 Best College among the 107 regional colleges in the South. 

Even though John Brown University is located in Siloam Springs, Arkansas our students will attend courses through John Brown in Branson, which will be taught by Link Year staff that operates as ad-junct professors. 

Acceptance into the Kanakuk LinkYear does not guarantee acceptance into John Brown University. Students who desire to enroll in college courses while at the Kanakuk LinkYear need to apply separately through John Brown University. Click here to APPLY NOW!
