Grand Canyon University, in partnership with Christian Home Educators Association of California, intends to award $1,500 scholarships to three graduating Junior or Senior homeschool students who are continuing their education at Grand Canyon University. These awards are renewable each year of the student’s attendance at GCU if the minimum conditions are met. Applications must be submitted to CHEA no later than February 28. If the applicant has not received a letter of acceptance from GCU in time to include it with their application, the rest of the application should be sent to CHEA by the February 28 deadline. GCU’s notification of acceptance may be submitted upon receipt.
