What Is the Take Heart Scholarship?

“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

-John 16:33

The Take Heart Scholarship fund was developed for you, our Y.I. Club World Changers, who are high school seniors and will soon advance to your next level of higher education. During these times of excitement, anxiousness and uncertainty, “take heart!” As Christians, we cannot anticipate that life will be perfect or familiar, but when we feel that the world has become difficult, take comfort in knowing that our God has overcome it all!

As you begin your new journey, LCEF’s Young Investors Club wants to assist your transition by offering financial support through the Take Heart Scholarship with up to three awards of $3,000, $1,000 and $500.

This Year’s Essay Question

C.S. Lewis wrote in Mere Christianity, “Every faculty you have, your power of thinking or moving your limbs from moment to moment, is given you by God. If you devoted every moment of your whole life exclusively to His service, you could not give Him anything that was not in a sense His own already.”

In 1,000 words or fewer, how does this quote apply to your life and experiences? As you move beyond high school, how will it change?
