Alumni Scholarships

The Alumni Association administers a scholarship program which is separate from the CCU scholarship program. Applications are available online in the beginning of the second semester of each school year.

Scholarships are available to all returning CCU students for tuition and are awarded based on Christian character, academic merit, intended area of ministry, and financial need. The Alumni Scholarship recipients are announced in May. Scholarship money comes from special gifts from alumni, friends of CCU, classes, and the interest earned from investments.

The Rich Mullins Worship and Music Scholarship is an alumni-administered scholarship for tuition. It is a scholarship to honor the life, talent, and contributions of one of CCU’s most famous alumni. The purpose is to inspire and motivate young people with musical ability and a demonstrated desire to minister through music and worship. The Mullins Scholarship was first given in 2008.

Recipients have been:

Sarah Grace Griswold and Brandon Drake – 2014; Blake Ford and Kendra Westrich – 2013;  Tyler Wines – 2012; Caleb Sullivan – ’11; Leah Claibourne and Brian Higgins– ’10; Brian Higgins – ’09; Marissa Rinehart – ’08.


Gifts to the Alumni Scholarship Fund and the Mullins Scholarship are encouraged and welcomed. The money given is endowed and only the earnings are awarded as scholarship money, so your gift will continue to bless students in years to come.
