Mission Statement

Faith & Education Scholarship Fund (FESF) is dedicated to developing leaders within the churches of Christ faith tradition who are committed to serving both their church and their community. FESF believes that a liberal arts education is crucial to the development of a leader's critical thinking skills, but we recognize that the cost of higher education is often a considerable obstacle to students attending the school that would most successfully nurture their growth. FESF is determined to minimize these financial barriers by offering substantial awards and giving preference to those applicants who demonstrate need.
