Help make Christian higher education more accessible for students.

Your tax-deductible contribution toward student scholarships allows Cornerstone University to offer programs, resources and experiences that help our students achieve their dreams and receive biblically-based guidance for their calling.

Our Student Scholarship Fund allows us to provide an affordable Christ-centered college experience for each student. In addition to reducing the cost of tuition for each student, the fund contributes to overall operating costs, enhances student life programs, provides necessary resources for CU students to excel in the classroom and sustains a quality campus environment.

Types of Scholarships

In addition to the Student Scholarship Fund, we have more than 125 established scholarships. This includes a variety of athletic scholarships, endowed scholarships, memorial scholarships and term scholarships.

Athletic Scholarships

Athletic scholarships are awards are based on proven athletic ability. Scholarship criteria may be obtained by contacting the athletic director or our coaching staff.

Endowed Scholarships

Endowed scholarships require a minimum commitment of $10,000, which can be made in a single contribution or over several years. Contributions to an endowment are never spent, so endowed scholarships remain in perpetuity.

Memorial Scholarships

The establishment of a memorial scholarship is a fitting way to honor someone close to you or someone who has had an influence on your life. A memorial scholarship can be established in another person's name.

Student Fund

A gift to the CU Student Fund not only helps with financial aid for students, but it also funds improvements in lab equipment, learning technology, counseling services, chapel speakers, residence hall furnishings and much more—all of which assist Cornerstone in offering a student-focused learning community where Jesus Christ is central!
