This scholarship fund was created to honor Dr. David Beckman's many years of faithful service at CCU, and to attract and retain bright and committed students. Dr. David Beckman served on three occasions as president of Rockmont College, one of CCU's heritage institutions. As an excellent leader and scholar, he left a lasting impact on numerous students, faculty, and friends.
Colorado Christian University is continually challenged with providing sufficient need-based scholarships in order to sustain the type of growth the university has been experiencing over the past several years. Currently, approximately ninety-five percent of students in the College of Undergraduate Studies receive some form of financial aid. Five years ago CCU awarded just over $3.5 million in scholarships. This year CCU is awarding almost $8 million to deserving students who will go out and transform our world in the name of Jesus Christ!
This phenomenal feat is partly accomplished through the Beckman Scholarship Annual Fund. The Beckman Scholarship Annual Fund exists for the sole purpose of providing students with the necessary scholarships to attend a private Christian university. Every single gift into this fund goes toward student scholarships! This fund provides the vital base of support for the next great teacher, business woman, counselor, psychologist, musician, politician, or pastor.
