The following scholarships are possibilities. You may pick and choose which you would like to apply for. Many have specific requirements that not all students would meet or qualify for. Look for scholarships that fit your specifications.
This list of scholarships is by no means comprehensive. There are thousands more possibilities out there for those who want to put in the time and effort.
Here’s a link to an ICAN page that contains different Scholarship search sites.
(Sites like College Board or FastWeb are nice because you fill out your information, then they eliminate scholarships that you wouldn’t qualify for anyway.)
ICAN has also created their own list of scholarships.
Dual Enrollment opportunities also exist for juniors and seniors. These courses give the students the opportunity to earn college credit while they are enrolled at Unity Christian.
Three types of college courses are available:
- Online Classes
- Courses on campus, at NCC or Dordt or Northwestern
- Concurrent Enrollment Courses here at Unity
Students will apply to the college of their choice and select a course that is offered at a time that works with the student's Unity schedule. Students must have a cumulative 3.0 GPA to apply.
