Alumni Endowed Scholarship
The Alumni Endowed Scholarship Fund provides financial assistance to direct descendants of Graceland University alumni. Anyone who completed 24 semester hours of course work at GU is considered an alumnus. Each year GU accepts applications starting on January 1st with a deadline of March 1. The alumni board scholarship committee works hand in hand with the GU admissions office to determine each year’s recipients. Some of the deciding criteria include academic, community and church work along with extracurricular activity and strong desire to attend the University. Students who are selected are eligible to receive the award for up to four years without having to reapply.
