ENID, OK January 20, 2017 — Phillips University Legacy Foundation is pleased to announce it is accepting new applications for its Undergraduate Scholarship and Leadership Development Program for the 2017-2018 academic year. The mission of the Phillips University Legacy Foundation is to follow the tradition of Phillips University by providing scholarships and opportunities to educate and develop leaders who embody Christian values in their lives, service and work. The program is available to incoming full-time freshman as well as college sophomores, juniors and seniors pursuing a liberal arts education. Since 2002, the Phillips University Legacy Foundation has awarded over $1.3 million in scholarships to 154 scholarship recipients and administered 15 Leadership Development Conferences. These recipients, known as Phillips Legacy Scholars, have completed over 400 Volunteer Service Projects.
The Phillips University Legacy Scholars program influences talented young people by acknowledging and nurturing their dreams, cultivating their talent, and providing leadership development and scholarship funds to ensure they can attend the colleges and universities currently or historically affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Legacy Scholars, among the brightest, most promising young people attending these 17 fine institutions, are awarded entrance into the unique program based on their academic achievements as well as present and potential leadership in their school, church and community. A network of resources is provided teaching the essence of the Phillips tradition of self-realization, potential as a human being and servant leader. It is not a requirement that recipients attend a church that is affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
