9) How Do Third-Culture Kids (TCK’s) Get Scholarships?

college-kidsThat’s the question that at least one missionary kid (‘MK’) care coordinator is asking of Brigada today. Suppose a TCK/MK has spent his or her entire life overseas.

Thanks in advance if you can help! (And thanks, Penny, for the question!)
