Regent University is offering a new $10,000 Freedom Scholarship available to new on-campus, undergraduate students.


Christian Leadership to Change the World is more than just our motto – it’s the heartbeat of Regent. The $10,000 Freedom Scholarship underscores our dedication to upholding values of freedom, truth, and virtue. The scholarship will provide free housing for two years on Regent’s campus in Virginia Beach, Virginia – an award valued at $10,000.


To apply for the $10,000 Freedom Scholarship, share a one-minute reel on Instagram by July 31 showing us how you’re preparing to Change the World at Regent University. Are you volunteering, working, traveling or filling up your free time this summer with your favorite hobby? We’d love for you to share your summer with us in an original, vlog-style video.
