Here’s a feel good story for a Saturday.

Full-ride scholarship for sex trafficking victims in the works at Christian college

‘The last thing we would want is to set someone up for failure’ by not providing crucial resources

Victims of sex trafficking will have a chance to get a college education for free, thanks to a new scholarship fund at Point Loma Nazarene University that appears to be the first of its kind in the country.

Beauty for Ashes, named after a verse in the book of Isaiah, is scheduled to launch a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo Oct. 30 with a goal to raise $40,000 in 40 days.

The school also plans to provide ongoing support for Beauty for Ashes through a donation page. The fund was started with the idea that it may need to be endowed, so that the scholarship can survive off of interest.

“The crowd fund is a public platform, a way to get the word out about what we’re up to, to a wide audience. It’s as much about friend raising as fund raising,” sociology professor Jamie Gates, director of the school’s Center for Justice & Reconciliation, told The College Fix by email.

The fund is intended to pay for one sex trafficking victim to attend the school, which costs $30,800 in tuition and $9,600 for room and board per year.

“In practice, the fund will be used to support each applicant across all four years at PLNU; we want to remain faithful until completion,” said Gates.

San Diego, where PLNU is based, is allegedly a hotbed of sex trafficking, identified as one of the FBI’s “high intensity child prostitution areas.”

“Aside from a deep faith in Christ and a loving Christian congregation to surround them, there may be no more important long-term intervention for the rehabilitation of survivors of human trafficking than the loving, academically challenging and carefully mentored environment of a Christian university education,” according to the Beauty for Ashes donation page.
