Qualified first-time students can earn up to $21,000 per year with our Founders Scholarship program. Students have the opportunity to receive one of 120 scholarships, ranging from $10,000 to $21,000. These awards are premium merit scholarships and may not be combined with other EU tuition discounts (with exception of need-based grants, endowed scholarships and athletic scholarships).
Founders Scholars, like all students, are challenged academically, encouraged to grow in faith and prepared for future careers and graduate studies. In fact, 96% of our graduates are admitted to graduate school or land jobs in their field of study right out of college.
