Church Matching Scholarship


About the Church Matching Scholarship

At Calvary Chapel Chino Valley we recognize the need for quality Christian education. In a world full of opposing and challenging views of the Christian faith we desire to support the God-inspired goals and aspirations of our youth by providing them with a portion of financial assistance toward their higher education.

A Church Matching Scholarship is a fixed monetary amount awarded to qualifying, recently admitted freshman college students. How it works is CCCV would award eligible applicants a certain scholarship amount (up to $500). Then, the partnering Christian university in which the student will be attending would agree to match that same awarded amount.

The student would apply separately at CCCV and the participating Christian university in which they have been admitted. Applications would be reviewed by both parties and, thus, determine eligibility for the student. Each party possesses their own requirements for the applicant.
