Each year, high school seniors can apply for the J. Robert Ashcroft NYSP, a scholarship in memory of a pioneer in AG higher education. Ashcroft served as president of four of our colleges, and he took a leading role as national secretary in the Department of Education. This prestigious scholarship in Ashcroft's honor provides financial assistance to incoming freshmen. Up to three district level winners are nominated by their district. The national scholarships will be awarded no later than April 1.
If you would like to complete an application or have questions, please contact your District Youth Director through your church's district office.
“I would like to study social work. I know that I have a calling to reach hurting people. I believe that through an education at an AG university I will be able to deepen my relationship with the Lord while preparing for my life’s vocation and for the plan I know He has for me.”
"[An AG university will provide me with] a learning environment that incorporates and affirms faith rather than mocking and challenging it. The Christian professors are supportive of faith and will help me to integrate my values into my vocation. I anticipate entering an arena of ideas that provides the variety of information and opinions I need to be a well-rounded and productive adult, yet still encourages me to apply beliefs to the learning process.”
(Referring to her AG church). "It was family — people doing life together — in an atmosphere that cultivated life-lasting, perspective-forming experiences that cemented my spiritual foundation. I believe that attending an AG university will continue to provide such an atmosphere. With an Evangel University education, I can combine education and missions to share the love of Christ with children of all different cultures and backgrounds.”
