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.
Proficient in four areas
$200 - $1,000 (Varies according to need and school funds)
Our colleges desire a wealth of cultural diversity throughout the student body, and the Ethnic Minority Scholarship provides financial assistance to students who otherwise could not afford costs associated with the school in which they are enrolled. The Financial Aid Director from your college can help you fill out the application. Please turn it into your Financial Aid Director once you are finished, and good luck!
$24,000 (Up to $400 per month for five consecutive years in full-time AG ministerial service)
When our students graduate and find a ministerial position, some find that they cannot afford their educational loan payments with their income. The AG Next Generation Grant provides a boost to your loan payments, enabling you to stay in the ministry and serve without such a large financial burden. We desire our AG alumni to follow their ministerial calling without financial stress!
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.
* 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.
