News: Three AGTS students receive Making THE Difference Scholarships from AG Trust
A total of $120,000 in Making THE Difference(MTD) Scholarships have been awarded to 116 students representing the 18 Assemblies of God colleges and universities located across the United States. MTD Scholarships are made available by the Assemblies of God Trust and the AG Alliance for Higher Education.
According to college administrators, even a smaller scholarship can often make the difference whether or not a student enrolls or continues their studies at an Assemblies of God university. AGTrust awards these scholarships designed to "make THE difference."
"Training young leaders is one of the major initiatives of AGTrust in our effort to empower future generations for the task of fulfilling the Great Commission," says Dr. George O. Wood, chairman of AGTrust and general superintendent of the Assemblies of God.
"We are investing in these young people through scholarships because we believe they will effectively reach multiplied thousands of people for Christ, if Jesus delays His coming, and will help build the kingdom of God in their generation."
Making THE Difference scholarships are awarded annually to students selected by the 18 individual AG schools, as AGTrust funds are available. Listed below are the 2011 Making THE Difference scholarship recipients from AGTS:
- Maile Cockett - Hilo, HI
- Brittany Lung - Dunedin, FL
