ABOUT THE $10,000 SCHOLARSHIP
The Unashamed Scholarship is about celebrating high school juniors and seniors living Unashamed for Christ in their schools, neighborhoods, cities, or across the globe! Romans 1:16 says, “For I am not ashamed of the Gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.”
Send us your essay. We want to hear your story.
If you are a high school junior or senior, tell us in 500-1,500 words how you are living unashamed for Christ in your school, your neighborhood, your city, or around the world. Submit your essay through the link above and then plan to join us on Liberty’s campus for College For A Weekend, (CFAW) September 16 – 18, 2021. There, you’ll have the opportunity to present your essay in front of a panel, and you could win a $10,000 scholarship.
WHAT IS CFAW?
College For A Weekend (CFAW) is an unforgettable opportunity for you to experience authentic Christian college life at Liberty’s campus in Central Virginia. You’ll attend classes that interest you, stay in a residence hall, and attend Convocation, a platform where some of the nation’s greatest leaders and influencers speak to our student body throughout the year.
Unashamed competitors must attend CFAW in order to participate.
God has given you a calling, and the Unashamed
Scholarship is an opportunity to pursue that call.
