Several grants and scholarships providing financial help to graduating high-school students and undergraduate freshmen who apply for a higher educational program at the Covenant College, Georgia.
Covenant College was founded in 1955 in Pasadena, California, and since 1964 has significantly developed a large campus on the “Castle in the Clouds,” an ideal location for the College situated on the Lookout Mountain, Georgia.
They offer funding through scholarships to incoming undergraduate students (freshmen) who are planning to get admitted or transferred at the Covenant College. Each year, around 99% of the Covenant students receive financial assistance in the form of scholarships, grants, loans, and/or student employment programs.
