Partnership Information

As a Take 2 Through College partner, your support will make higher education available to minority students who are underrepresented in college enrollment and who do not have the financial resources to attend Regent University.

How Take 2 Works

  • A partner's funding plus a matching grant from Regent University will cover students' full tuition, fees and housing. Matching donations are determined based on the students' need after all other scholarship/grant programs have been applied to the students' charges.
  • The partner's commitment is for up to four years, depending upon the academic program, and partnering churches or organizations can sponsor a minimum of two students (or more, as long as they are in pairs). Partners not only come alongside students to offer financial assistance, but they encourage the students' success through mentoring relationships.
  • Take 2 focuses on the critical need for degree completion by undergraduate students. However, if a partner wants to fund one or both of their students at the graduate level, that request will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
  • Partners may receive philanthropic tax benefits depending on the level of participation in the selection process of students.
