Riggs Scholarships

To help our high school seniors attend our quality schools, the Assemblies of God institutions and departments created the Riggs Scholarships, named after former General Superintendent Ralph Riggs, an early advocate for higher education in our AG Fellowship. Riggs, a formal faculty member at two of our colleges, believed that every high school graduate should have the opportunity to attend an AG endorsed college.

  • Two (one male, one female) of ten semi-finalists selected to receive General Superintendent National Scholarships (up to $30,000 each)
  • Eight semi-finalists receive one-time $5,000 scholarships



  • Currently attending an AG church
  • High school senior working toward acceptance into an AG endorsed college
  • Minimum GPA of 3.7 (unweighted 4.0 scale) and an ACT score of 28 or SAT score of 1870
  • Demonstrate leadership potential through involvement in an AG church, school, and community
  • Demonstrate a dedicated walk with God and a commitment to use his/her gifts toward Kingdom expansion


*  For the Superintendent’s award to continue, the student must maintain a 3.5 GPA and continue attendance and active involvement in an AG church while enrolled in school.

I am attending Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU). The Ralph Riggs scholarship means so much! I knew that the Lord had called me to attend SAGU, but I had no idea how I was going to pay for it.  Receiving a Riggs scholarship has enabled me to go to college with less financial worry than before. Thanks so much!

The college I am attending is North Central University in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The $5,000 Ralph Riggs Scholarship has been a huge answer to prayer for me. I am looking forward to receiving an Assemblies of God college education because of the help from this scholarship! Thank you so much for this financial blessing!
