About the Scholarship
The Waynesburg Christian Life Scholarship recognizes students who have a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and who are involved in the life of a local church as they grow in faith. The scholarship is available to first-year freshmen and provides $4,000 over four years.
Scholarship recipients are also provided with activities, conversations and mentorship through the office of the University Chaplin and the Center for Campus Ministry.
Each recipient is assigned a Christian mentor from their anticipated field, discipline or major so that they can grow in their Christian faith while also developing leadership qualities at Waynesburg University.
