Scholarship Luncheon Brings Students & Donors Together

Scholarship LuncheonNorthwest Christian University’s scholarship winners met many of the donors who fund the 286 endowed scholarships available for students to apply for while enrolled in the university during the Annual Scholarship Luncheon held recently in the banquet room in Burke-Griffeth Hall.

“We are grateful  for NCU’s generous donors, alumni, churches, and friends who have established endowed scholarships to make outstanding Christian university education more affordable for our students,” said Dennis Lindsay, Dr. Theol., NCU’s Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the Faculty. “The annual luncheon is an important event for our students to thank the donors who invest in their education and then for donors to meet the excellent students who embrace NCU’s mission to foster wisdom, faith, and service, both inside the classroom and outside, as they prepare for careers in their chosen fields.”

Nearly 90% of NCU students rely on financial support, including scholarships, to fund their education.  This year, 100 NCU students qualified for support through the endowed scholarship funds.

In addition to recognizing donors and scholarship winners, the three finalists in this year’s Bash-Whisler Bible Reading Competition recited scripture readings.

“The scriptures passages recited by the Bash-Whisler student competitors remind us all that as faculty, staff, donors and students we are called to share our time and treasure to help others bring our their talents whether it is through scholarships, assisting a classmate, or finding ways to serve through our churches, jobs and community,” Lindsay said.
