Our annual SEARCH Scholarship Competition invites academically outstanding high school students to compete for one of four John Wesley Hughes scholarships equal to 100% of tuition, or one of 20 Henry Clay Morrison scholarships equal to 75% of tuition.
Our purpose in this scholarship contest is to help you step closer to envisioning how you will grow both academically and spiritually as you embark on an exciting path toward building your future at Asbury.
The competition consists of a written essay, resume submission and a panel interview, and it culminates with a special program to celebrate competitors. You will have the chance to connect with current students, Admissions counselors, fellow competitors, Asbury faculty, and Asbury University President Dr. Kevin Brown.
Invited student participants can sign up for February 3-4, 2022 or February 17-18, 2022.
Scholarships are awarded based on your academic scores, interview, resume and essay scores. We give special emphasis to academic achievements, but your non-athletic, extracurricular activities are also taken into consideration. SEARCH is a celebration of discovery and achievement in all areas—even those that go far beyond the classroom.
Scholarship recipients will be notified by mid-March, 2022. If you are chosen for the scholarship, an Asbury University Admissions Counselor will call you to deliver the good news.
Meet our Asbury experts and get inspired to discover your future among accomplished and passionate Christian scholars.
