In an effort to assist students in attending one of the Assemblies of God's endorsed schools, AG Trust and The Alliance for Assemblies of God Higher Education will make applications for the Riggs Scholarship Fund available November 15, 2009, at http://www.AGTrust.org.
The scholarship is named after former General Superintendent Ralph Riggs, who was an early advocate for higher education in the Assemblies of God.
Ten semi-finalists will be chosen for the General Superintendent scholarship. However, only two scholarships - up to $30,000 each, awarded over a 4-year period - will be awarded to one male and one female high school senior.
The eight finalists not chosen will receive one-time $5,000 scholarships that will be awarded over the first two semesters they are enrolled in an Assemblies of God school.
In order to apply, students must demonstrate leadership potential through past and present involvement in an AG church, school and community; have a minimum GPA of 3.7 on a 4.0 scale; maintain a 3.5 GPA and continue attendance and active involvement in an AG church while enrolled in school and demonstrate a dedicated walk with God and a commitment to use his or her gifts toward Kingdom expansion.
Applications for the Riggs Scholarship Fund are due February 15, 2010, and will be awarded no later than April 1, 2010.
