Philosophy behind the scholarship
The Kansas-Nebraska Conference of Seventh-day Adventists no longer owns or operates a boarding academy. However, it is the determined wish of the conference and its constituents to continue providing an Adventist education for the secondary youth of the conference who do not live in close proximity to an academy.
The scholarship was designed to assist families with a portion of the funding needed since students are required to travel to other states to attend school.

Southern Adventist University provides a service-oriented scholarship program that pairs students with elderly adults in their community in a mutually beneficial way. 

This year, almost over 2,500 students in these programs bring joy to the lives of nearly 4,000 senior citizens through fun activities such as visiting, reading, and playing games. When appropriate, they may also provide light housework and other chores.

As these young people build generational bridges and learn the value of service, they also benefit from the wisdom and mentorship of the older adults.

In the process, their time together helps finance the student’s Christian education at their local schools in your conference.  The grant is an 80/20 matching grant and will provide over $1.5M this year in scholarships to students.

We welcome all schools to apply and participate in the grant.  We want your conference schools to join the 200 schools participating in the grant this year. 

The first step for a school to complete in the grant process is to send a school representative (principal, board member, pastor, or parent volunteer) to attend an in-person training.  Our next official training will be during our annual conference April 9 -11, on the campus of Southern Adventist University.  The conference is free and we will provide meals on-campus.  Travel and lodging are the responsibility of the schools.
