Award is renewable annually

Westside Christian High School announced it will award one Luis Palau Leadership Scholarship for the 2013-2014 school year. The scholarship provides a Westside education to a student who has demonstrated academic and leadership potential yet is held back by life struggles out of his or her control. The scholarship is renewable annually for sophomore, junior and senior year tuition expenses contingent on fulfillment of set criteria.

To qualify for the Luis Palau Leadership Scholarship, applicants must meet the following requirements:

n Likely qualify for financial aid as determined by an independent organization.

n Have an accumulated seventh- and eighth-grade GPA of 3.0 or higher.

n Be an incoming freshman that is not already in the application process at Westside.

n Show leadership potential as demonstrated in a written essay and verbalized during an interview with the scholarship selection committee.

n Not be a direct relative or any employee of the Luis Palau organization or Westside Christian High School.

n Have demonstrated a desire to be in active pursuit of a relationship with Christ and a willingness to sign Westside Christian High School’s statement of faith.

An application form and complete details of the scholarship can be found online at or call 503-697-4711 for more information. Scholarship applications and the required attachments must be submitted to Westside no later than 3 p.m. on April 29.

“Central to Westside’s mission is the development of our students into servant leaders,” said Scott Ball, Westside academic dean.

“We are intentional about showing students what it means to be leaders, then taking them outside the classroom to put these skills to work in the world around them. We believe that with the right leadership skills these students can help change the world, and we want to make this opportunity available to a student who otherwise would not be able to attend.”
