Many foundations, associations, companies and universities provide scholarship opportunities to students of all ages, but these aren't the only entities that offer educational monetary awards. Religious associations are often a great resource for financial aid. Christian faith-based groups and associations make a number of scholarship options available to Christian students.

United Church of Christ
The United Church of Christ provides members and their children with college scholarship opportunities. The church states that all applicants must be under the age of 25, and entering their sophomore, junior or senior years. Therefore, graduating high school students are not eligible. Students must earn at least a 3.0 grade point average, although students entering their sophomore year may have a minimum of a 2.0 grade point average to apply. The award, which ranges from £325 to £650, does not automatically renew, but students may reapply twice. Applicants must submit financial records, two letters of recommendation, and a personal statement. Students must also enrol at a four-year college or university to be qualified.

Christian Missionary Scholarships
Missionaries or the children of missionaries receive scholarship opportunities from the Christian Missionary Scholarship Foundation. The missionary work must be done outside of the United States, and applicants must demonstrate the financial burden of the work. The foundation requires that students enrol at either Calvin College, Hope College, Wheaton College, Kuyper College, Dordt College or Trinity Christian College. Applicants must also earn enough to cover at least 50 per cent of their university room and board expenses, and they must maintain an excellent academic record. The award amount varies depending on financial needs and tuition expenses, and it's available during all four years of undergraduate studies.
