Grace University has developed an exciting new partnership with the TeamMates Mentoring Program to provide scholarships to deserving students seeking biblically based Christ-centered higher education.
The TeamMates Mentoring Program was started in 1991 by Tom and Nancy Osborne to provide support and encouragement to youth. The goal of the program is to see youth graduate from high school and pursue post-secondary education.
“We are excited to be partnering with the TeamMates Mentoring Program,” said Bill Hammond, chief enrollment officer at Grace University. “The TeamMates Mentoring Program gives youth a sense of purpose and a vision, and Grace University will help those youth reach that vision.”
Scholarships will be awarded to academically sound mentees with a high GPA who meet Grace University admission standards and who have actively participated in TeamMates for two years. Students who maintain a strong GPA at Grace University will receive a $9,000 scholarship each year during their four years of study.
“Grace University and TeamMates share a similar mission to disciple youth so they can reach their higher education, professional and ministry goals,” said David Barnes, Ed.D., president of Grace University. “It is an honor to partner with an organization that has done so much for the youth in our community.”
Grace University, located in Omaha, Neb., is an accredited, private Christian university offering 20 academic programs with 40 diverse areas of study for undergraduate, graduate and adult degree completion students including education, business, psychology, music, communication studies, nursing and Christian ministries. The university’s mission is to develop servant leaders for the home, the church and the world through excellence in biblically integrated education.
