Radio station partners with Liberty for American Scholar Award

September 9, 2009 : University Advancement staff

Liberty University has partnered with Central Virginia radio station Spirit FM to make college a reality for one deserving high school student.

The American Scholar award — a four-year, full tuition scholarship — is given annually to a high school junior or senior in the listening area. All eligible students should apply online by Sept. 11. The winner will be announced during Liberty University’s home football game on Oct. 31.

Both Spirit FM and Liberty aim to reach people for Christ as well as minister to believers. Spirit FM has been a vital contributor for conferences and concerts held at Liberty, including Winterfest, an exciting two-day event to ring in the New Year. This past year, the LU Alumni Relations Office worked with the station and God’s Pit Crew in a food drive to provide for families affected by the current economic situation.

Partnering with Spirit FM allows Liberty University to cross boundaries in communication and give more people the opportunity to participate in its campus events. The American Scholar Award is just another way that Liberty University is blessing people with the gift of education.

 


To apply for the American Scholar award, fill out an online application with Spirit FM and a Liberty University Admissions Application (the fee will be waived). Applications will be accepted through Sept. 11.
