“If what we claim about Jesus Christ is true, then Christians should be among the most active, most serious, and most open-minded advocates of general human learning.”
– Mark Noll, Jesus Christ and the Life of the Mind
The Trustee Scholarship Program at Grove City College provides our highest performing students with a rich academic experience rooted in scholarly exploration, spiritual formation, and vocational discernment. We believe that undergraduate studies are a high calling, and we are eager to help our students develop robust Christian minds and imaginations for God’s glory and our neighbors’ good.
Grove City College awards 24 Trustee Scholarships each year. The top eight recipients are designated as Trustee Fellows and are awarded the College’s most generous merit-based scholarship: a “full-ride” award which covers standard tuition, room and board charges. The remaining 16 scholarship winners – designated as Trustee Scholars – receive an $8,000 award. Both scholarships are renewable for up to four years provided the cumulative QPA requirement of 3.40 is maintained. Fellows and scholars benefit from discussions and rich activities with their peers and with faculty from the Calderwood School of Arts and Letters and the Hopeman School of Science, Engineering and Mathematics, including four courses taken as a group from the College’s humanities core. Through these interactions, students are challenged to pursue extraordinary opportunities to grow, explore and serve. Our hope is that many fellows and scholars alike will develop into viable candidates for highly competitive internships, leadership development programs, service projects, research positions and post graduate fellowships like the Fulbright, Rhodes, Marshall and Lilly.
We hope you’ll consider joining us in an exceptional program and a community that will equip and support you to read and develop in your field to a level uncommon for undergraduate education. We believe that God in Christ is making all things new, and he has invited us to see our intellectual life and vocational path as part of that great redemptive enterprise.
