Cornerstone Scholars

Cornerstone Scholars is a nomination-based, full-tuition scholarship opportunity at Lubbock Christian University that calls for student leaders who imitate Christ, the chief Cornerstone for all believers.

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

Steadfast and enduring, their presence is a stabilizing and unifying force to others — providing

  • strength in storms,
  • steadiness in uncertainty,
  • and direction in doubt. 

These individuals hold true to their faith and are confident making their own path, with proven histories of leadership, inspiration, and relational skills. They are trailblazers, and those around them are inclined to follow— making their communities better, just by being who they are.

The person who serves as a cornerstone for any group provides leadership that points others to the true Cornerstone.  They are imitators of Christ, and they are the type of student who is a “role model” – one whose influence helps others to realize their own full potential.

We are looking for young men and women who demonstrate amazing love, intense courage, outstanding character, and unmitigated integrity – the same traits Jesus exhibited to those whom he ministered and mentored.

The Cornerstone Scholars program is a full-tuition scholarship, dependent on nominations, and based on the following criteria:

  • Unequivocal commitment to Jesus Christ that is intentionally lived out
  • Demonstrated track record of service
  • Demonstrated leadership potential
  • Strong interpersonal skills
  • Academically eligible for unconditional admission

Expectations of the Scholarship Recipient

  • Monthly meetings with president and first lady
  • Bi-weekly meetings with president
  • Engage in leadership development curriculum
  • Serve as “campus ambassadors”
  • Assisting the president as necessary
  • Annual renewal of scholarship
  • Pay for room and board (not included in scholarship)

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
