A Christian College of the Liberal Arts & Sciences

Houghton College Student Scholarship Fund

For 130 years, the Houghton College mission has remained the same. Today, as in 1883, Houghton offers an academically challenging, Christ-centered education in the arts and sciences to students from diverse traditions and economic backgrounds. Meet Peter and Kadesha, two current Houghton students following God’s call on their lives through the support of generous friends and alumni like you.

Help us “celebrate their story” with a special gift to the Houghton College Student Scholarship Fund today. Every dollar provided directly funds a Houghton student’s education. By partnering with us, not only will you help to close the gap on this year’s $1,150,000 commitment to scholarship aid, you will advance the Houghton mission to grow scholar- servants for a world in need.

Houghton has helped me understand God never gives us more than we can bear. At the end of a Fall semester, I faced the challenge of trying to pay my tuition. I was devastated. “Why would God bring me to a college I cannot pay for,” I thought. I put my trust in Him and was able to return for the Spring semester and make the Dean’s List!

Houghton has changed how I think about the idea of community – how people treat each other and work together. There is a peace and calmness here. I lost my mom last year and found healing at the Sunday night student worship service. Houghton has played a large part in maturing and growing me.
