The Alliance is giving away college scholarships!

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. ­– Introducing the Alliance Family New Undergraduate Student Scholarship. On behalf of U.S. Alliance Church Ministries, the Alliance Youth Office affirms its utmost confidence in our Alliance educational institutions and their ability to equip students for lives that honor Jesus Christ and fruitful careers that reflect His character. Therefore, it is our desire that Alliance students be given the opportunity to experience the affirmation and spiritual vitality of our Alliance college campuses. To help make this possible, The Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA) is awarding 10 scholarships of $1,000 each to qualifying high school students (grades 10-12).
Any student planning to attend an Alliance undergraduate institution of his or her choice is eligible to be nominated to receive a scholarship, which would be applied to the fall semester of his or her freshman year. In order to qualify, the student must be a U.S. citizen and an active attender of a C&MA church at the time they receive and activate the awarded scholarship.

If a student you know is planning to attend an Alliance institution, visit to complete and submit an online student nomination form. Only one submission per student will be accepted. All submissions must be received by 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, February 27, 2018. We will then draw 10 winning recipients and notify them March 1-7. Please make sure nomination forms are completed thoroughly and accurately, as information on the form will be crucial in contacting scholarship recipients.
Please take advantage of this opportunity to bless Alliance students by helping them get into an excellent Alliance college that will equip them vocationally, connect them with like-minded students, and help keep their faith on solid ground. We look forward to seeing them on one of our campuses soon.

Please note: By submitting student information for the scholarship drawing, you grant permission to provide disclosed student information to Nyack College, Crown College, Toccoa Falls College, and Simpson University admissions offices.
