Cornerstone Scholars

Cornerstone Scholars

Lubbock Christian University’s Premier Leadership Scholarship

Nomination-based, full-tuition* scholarship for the undergraduate experience.

Just as a cornerstone is the pinnacle structural element of a building and Christ the foundation of our faith, the Cornerstone Scholarship Scholar is an anchor to their community.

therefore thus says the Lord God,
“Behold, I am the one who has laid as a foundation in Zion,
a stone, a tested stone,
a precious cornerstone, of a sure foundation."

Isaiah 28:16

So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.

Ephesians 2:19-22

They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.

Luke 6:48
