Give to Fuel Students’ Dreams

Gifts to Shorter University make an incredible impact on the lives of our students. By supporting the Student Scholarship Fund, you can help the 99% of our traditional students who receive financial aid. Will you invest in training young people to impact the world for Christ?

Support Student Scholarships

Shorter University is committed to offering an excellent learning opportunity for our students in a Christian environment. To accomplish this purpose, we need donors who generously invest in Shorter and our students.

One of the best ways to help is by supporting the Student Scholarship Fund. This year, Shorter will award approximately $11 million in institutional financial aid, and 99% of our traditional students will receive financial aid.

Your gift to the Student Scholarship Fund will help us continue providing scholarships and strengthen our scholarship program.

A Don’t Miss Event!

Make plans now to join us on Thursday, December 6, for the President’s Gala to support the Student Scholarship Fund. This festive evening of food, music, and fellowship will feature beloved Christian leader Rev. Bob Skelton.

Donors’ Dollars at Work

Read below to hear from our students themselves about how donors’ gifts are impacting their lives.

Yanelis Hernandez“I am from Puerto Rico. This year, we got hit with a big hurricane, and my grandfather, who was helping me pay for school, lost everything. This scholarship not only helped me finish my first year of nursing school but it also brought some light into my life during a very dark time. For that, I will be eternally grateful. Thank you again for your generosity.” – Yanelis Hernandez

Gracie Grant“I am extremely grateful for y’all! I am a senior biology major who just got accepted into medical school. Without y’all’s donation, I would not have been able to attend Shorter and pursue my dream of becoming a doctor! Thank you!” – Gracie Grant

Cecil Robinson“Simply put, I thank you for your contribution. As a communication major, I have the ability to flourish in my academic field through your graciousness. I know that being a recipient of this scholarship is a high honor, and since it is a high honor, I hold my work to an expert level of distinction.” – Cecil Robinson

Lauren Jendrezejewski“I come from a small town in Texas and moved 700 miles away from home to attend Shorter University. When I got here, I was homesick and doubting my calling when I heard I had received this scholarship. It has been a HUGE blessing to me!!! God showed me I am on the right track, and is has allowed me to focus solely on my internship at church and my ministry. You have shown me God’s grace and love for me in a huge way.” – Lauren Jendrezejewski
