Support

Scholarships

Between 40% and 50% of our students each year qualify for financial aid, some of which comes in the form of scholarship awards. Continual support of these scholarships is vital if we are to continue to open our doors as widely as possible. What greater gift to offer a young person than this Christian Liberal Arts and Sciences education? 

Below are listed both our Scholarship Funds, which are allocated entirely in one school year, and Scholarship Endowment Funds, whose principal is invested and which provide perpetual scholarship income. We are grateful for the many donors who bless our students by generously giving to Scholarships. There are many students at Covenant who simply wouldn’t be here without you. Please continue to help us teach the next generation to live well!
