The Charles and Penny Faust Urban Scholars Program
The Urban Scholars Program is about urban leadership development. CCU invests in the lives of students who come from families and cultures in which educational success is typically not achieved. The core of the program is simple: discover, recruit, and scholarship students from urban areas who demonstrate Christian character and leadership ability.
