“We are excited to have this group of outstanding students join our campus community this fall,” said Andy Denton, vice president for enrollment management. “Since our first Founders Scholars arrived on campus in the fall of 2006, we have seen remarkable students such as these positively impact the university. They have provided valuable leadership, achieved great academic success and graduated from Evangel with honors.”

To be eligible for a Founders Scholarship, candidates must have received a 30 or higher on the ACT or a 1330 or higher on the combined critical reading and math portions of the SAT. Candidates must also demonstrate church, school and community-related involvement and display strong Christian character.

“Over the next four years, full-tuition Founders Scholarships will be worth approximately $70,000 and half-tuition $36,000,” Denton said. “Founders Scholarships are renewable for four years, as long as the student maintains the eligibility requirements.”
