We want to recognize you for the dedication and rigor that you've poured into your academics, community and spiritual life. One way we acknowledge students and their efforts is through the scholarships we offer.

Academic scholarships are awarded based on a student's G.P.A. and test scores. Although international students do not need to take the ACT or SAT to be admitted to Cornerstone, test scores are required in order to be considered for academic scholarships.

Student-athletes also have the opportunity to be considered for additional funding. If you are a student-athlete interested in athletic scholarship opportunities, complete a recruitment form.
