Phillips University Legacy Foundation is pleased to announce that it is accepting new applications for its Undergraduate Scholarship and Leadership Development Program for the 2023-2024 academic year.


This program makes annual awards of up to $8,500 per year to full-time undergraduate students pursuing a liberal arts education at any of the 17 colleges or universities currently or historically related to the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Recipients are chosen based on their academic achievements and their present and potential leadership in their academic and local communities. The program is available to incoming first-year students as well as college sophomores and juniors. As part of the program, recipients engage annually in leadership development opportunities such as the annual Legacy Scholars Leadership Development Conference and the Volunteer Leadership Project.


The mission of the Phillips University Legacy Foundation is to develop leaders who will transform the world. We do this by providing life-changing scholarships and transformative leadership development opportunities that ensure that Legacy Scholars can graduate with minimum debt and make a difference in the world around them. The foundation’s mission and work seeks to honor the legacy of Phillips University and its community of over 9000 alumni and former faculty and staff.
