AWANA Scholarships

Even though AWANA scholarships are not designed specifically for homeschool students, we are listing them hereĀ  for your convenience. The wonderful thing about these scholarships is that most are guaranteed. That means, if you earn the AWANA award, you will get the scholarship without having to compete with other students. The AWANA program is offered by churches in most geographic locations. For general information about AWANA, visit the website at http://awana.org/.

A second benefit of AWANA is that it can provide a foundation for Religious Studies courses, meaning you get school credit for the work you put into AWANA. That’s an option traditionally-schooled students don’t usually have. If your AWANA book for the year is I Corinthians, you can add more in-depth study material on I Corinthians to reach a half-credit, or perhaps even a full credit, depending on the extra requirements added.

These scholarships are offered by the colleges themselves, and reflect a variety of award amounts. For some colleges, students must have earned the Citation, the highest award. Others offer funds (usually less) for the Meritorious and/or Timothy awards. The scholarships range from $500 to $12,000, depending on the college and the AWANA award that was earned.

It is sometimes difficult to find a church offering the AWANA program for high school students. That does not mean it’s impossible to complete the program. Many churches will accommodate students by meeting individually to sign off the requirements.

As is the case with all of our listings on this site, information you plan to use should be verified with the sponsoring organization. For more AWANA scholarship information, visit http://awana.org/youthministries/aym-colleges,default,pg.html.
