The Alumni Association administers a scholarship program which is separate from the CCU scholarship program. Applications are available online in the beginning of the second semester of each school year and must be completed along with the reference questionnaires by March 31. Scholarships are awarded to sophomores, juniors, and seniors of the undergraduate divisions based on Christian character, academic merit, intended area of ministry, and financial need. The Alumni Scholarship recipients are announced in May. Scholarship money comes from special gifts from alumni, friends of CCU, classes, and the interest earned from investments.
Rich Mullins Worship and Music Scholarship
The Rich Mullins Worship and Music Scholarship is an alumni-administered scholarship. It is a scholarship to honor the life, talent, and contributions of one of CCU’s most famous alumni. The purpose is to inspire and motivate young people with musical ability and a demonstrated desire to minister through music and worship. The Mullins Scholarship was first given in 2008. Recipients have been: Marissa Rinehart – `08, Brian Higgins – `09, Leah Claibourne and Brian Higgins – ’10 and Caleb Sullivan – ’11 and Tyler Wines in 2012.
Applications for the Mullins Scholarship and reference questionnaires are to be completed each year by March 31. Watch for information in early 2014.
Gifts to the Alumni Scholarship Fund and the Mullins Scholarship are encouraged and welcomed. The money given is endowed and only the earnings are awarded as scholarship money, so your gift will continue to bless students in years to come.
