Scholarship Matching

Most Adventist schools in the United States provide matching scholarships to students who participate in Youth Rush.  Although summer earnings are not restricted to school tuition, the matching program schools offer is only for the earnings actually forwarded to the school by Upper Columbia Conference, not on earnings used for other purposes.

Below is a chart with the scholarship matching information from the Adventist Colleges and Universities in the North American Division, as well as a chart that shows the matching programs offered by schools in the Upper Columbia Conference. Although we try and keep this information as accurate as possible, it is subject to change by the individual schools listed.
