The Crossroads Foundation exists to support Christ-centered education. Scholarships are available for those attending a Christian college for the advancement of their education. With an established perpetual endowment fund of over $2 million, there is no end in sight to this opportunity!
So, whether you are a student looking to attend a Christian University, or a church seeking to train your existing leaders, we have a scholarship for you!

Recipients of scholarship aid from the Crossroads Foundation will be selected by the Scholarship Selection Committee. Scholarships will be awarded based on the number of applications received and money available.
- The stipulations for receiving a Crossroads Foundation scholarship are binding throughout the recipient’s education. Previous recipients may not be re-considered if any of the following conditions apply:
- Recipient does not maintain a B grade average.
- Recipient transfers to a non-approved college.
- Recipient is no longer considered full-time.
- The Directors of the Foundation also reserve the right to terminate a scholarship for what a majority believe to be academic incompetence, immorality or unbecoming conduct on the part of a Crossroads Foundation scholarship recipient. Actions such as being placed on probation by the college or being expelled from school will potentially disqualify a recipient from future awards, unless strong evidence can be produced that they have made dramatic change in their life.
