The Bible Seminary of Los Angeles has a chapter of Phi Alpha Chi, and each year elections to its membership are made from the members of the graduating class who have maintained a grade average of A- (Grade point 2.0) or better throughout their course. The charter permits up to 15% of the graduating class to be so honored Students completing the three-year Institute courses with an average of A­ (grade point 2.0) or above are graduated Cum Laude. SCHOLARSHIPS The Helen Day Fuller scholarships were established in 1942 by Charles E. Fuller (Biola '21) in loving memory of his mother. Each semester the faculty of the Institute selects one woman and one man from the third or fourth year class to receive these awards. The choice is made on the basis of spirituality, scholarship standing, attitudes, and need. The Jean Bernard Student Fund, established by the will of Jean Bernard, provides a loan fund to assist students studying to be missionaries. Money from this fund is loaned to qualifying students without interest. Honorary scholarships are provided each year by donors to the school each o! whom wish to sponsor personally the training of a student for Christian service by contributing the entire cost of such tuition. Approximately 100 of such sponsorships are now in force. LIBRARY FACILITIES The Biola Library, now containing more than 10,500 volumes, is a valuable aid to the study of the Book of Books. The majority of these volumes are on Biblical sub­ jects. In addition to available books, the Library offers special services to students for practical work assignments. Scripturegraph materials, object lessons, and pictures for story telling are available, also charts outlining dispensational and other Scrip­ ture material for teaching. Sermon materials are filed according to subject and also according to book and chapter reference.

The Reading Room is a pleasant place in which to study. Many a Biola student has found here not only a rich storehouse, but also a sanctuary where life lessons are learned in the light of God's Word
