Partner Church

Cincinnati Christian University has always had a strong relationship with the local church. In order to keep this bond strong, we have initiated the Partner Church program


  • Full-time students who are active members of Partner Churches may receive a tuition scholarship of up to $3000 per year ($1500 per semester).
  • Full-time church staff members serving with a Partner congregation may receive a 50% tuition scholarship toward graduate (CBS) or Center of Adult Learning and Leadership (CALL) classes.

Additional restrictions may apply to both the Partner Church Student and Employee Scholarship. See individual applications for a complete listing of policies and requirements.


  1. Agree to financially support CCU at a minimum of $4,000 per year. If a church is in the process of becoming a qualified Partner Church, students will receive the scholarship during the next full semester after all qualifications are met (all gifts to the University must be unrestricted, general gift funds). Individuals cannot designate a contribution through the church to the benefit of a specific student as this is a violation of the Internal Revenue Code.
  2. Assign a liaison from the church who will promote the Partner Church Scholarship to church staff, student ministry, parents, and any other potential prospective CCU students. The liaison will aid in communication and promotion as outlined in the Partner Church Application.
  3. Place a CCU website link on the church’s website. This link will provide information about the benefits of the Partner Church program and other opportunities available at CCU.
  4. Download and complete the 2015 Partner Church Application. Return it by postal mail, fax, or scan/email to:
