Presidents Fund Awards

At the last gathering every year, the Northwestern College Alumni Society Presidents Fund awards $1000 grants to several students who have displayed potential for pastoral ministry and have excelled in areas such as leadership, student life, languages, religion, or music.

Though the awards are for excellence in a particular area, the faculty selection committee took into consideration general academic achievement, campus citizenship and participation, and potential for pastoral ministry in coming to their decision.
