CCU experienced the value of cross-cultural experiences that international students bring to our community through the Sons of Sudan Project, and we are now embarking on a new initiative that will serve international students and children of missionaries by providing scholarships that will grant these students access to quality Christ-centered education at Colorado Christian University.
Many Christians are passionate about supporting missionaries as they advance God’s Kingdom through their service overseas. Educating the children of missionaries is an important aspect of that support. God has literally brought the world to our doorstep in the United States, as foreign students pursue academics at American universities. These students typically return to their home countries to be leaders and influencers of their societies.
In 2009, we had 125 international students who applied to CCU and were accepted. However, only two of those students actually enrolled. The financial costs of attending a private, Christian college in the United States can be prohibitively high – especially when travel costs over and above tuition, room, and board are factored into the equation.
In order to empower high caliber foreign students, Colorado Christian University has recently created the Great Commission Scholarship Fund for international students and missionary children. As a contributor to the Great Commission Scholarship Fund, you will be providing the critical support necessary to award scholarships – helping to offset expenses for these deserving students.

If you would like to learn more about the Great Commission Scholarship Fund and how you can impact students’ lives through a financial gift or prayer support of this effort, please contact CCU’s Office of Development at 303-963-3330 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d be happy to meet with you personally to share additional details of the need and vision that will provide the critical support for these deserving students.
