College scholarships


College scholarships

Investing in an education can be one of life’s biggest expenses, but it is also one of your most valuable assets. Through the Everence college scholarship program, we support our members in paying for the cost of higher education – a benefit that will last a lifetime.

We believe the college scholarship is a valuable opportunity to encourage people to see the connection between money and faith, as well as to recognize students who are committed to academic achievement and expressing their faith values in the wider world.
