Scripture Memory Scholarship

Colorado Christian University’s Scripture Memory Scholarship is awarded to students who demonstrate the ability to memorize portions of scripture. The Scripture Memory Scholarship allows students to use their memories to reduce tuition costs - benefiting their faith and their finances at the same time. Students can choose whichever translation they wish, or multiple translations. While memorizing a book of the Bible is no easy task, it is achievable. Read More

The Legacy Challenge

Two generous donors believe in the mission and value of CCU so much that they established this challenge, to ensure that not only will CCU be in better financial standing in the future, but that the Faith|Family|Freedom Campaign will be successful. With the match, 10% of the value of deferred gifts goes to CCU today. For example, if John and Suzie name CCU as a beneficiary in their will at $250,000, it results in $25,000 for the Faith|Family|Freedom Campaign now! Read More
