Alumni Benefits

Alumni Scholarships

The Alumni Office currently facilitates two scholarship opportunities. The Alumni Student Referral Voucher gives each alumnus the opportunity to recruit a student to KCU and provide that student with a $500 scholarship while doing so. The Legacy scholarship is a $1,000 renewable scholarship available for students whose parent(s), grandparent(s) and/or great-grandparent(s) are graduates of KCU.

Alumni Student Referral Voucher


As distinguished Alumni of Kentucky Christian University, you have the opportunity to partner with your Alma Mater and transform the lives of future students. The best part is…it costs you nothing!

Students tell us often that an alumnus inspired them to attend KCU. The Alumni Legacy Referral offers you a simple way to encourage a prospective student to consider the value of attending a Christian University. Plus, it is a very thoughtful way to help ease the financial burden of paying for college.

Simply give the Alumni Legacy Voucher to your recommended prospective undergraduate student and the applicant will receive a $500 tuition voucher towards their first year tuition (divided between two semesters) once accepted. It’s that simple!

What now? Print the voucher, complete your information, then present the $500 voucher to a new prospective student. It’s that simple.

Make some high school students day – their life – by sharing this extraordinary opportunity to attend KCU and help pay for college!

Terms: Completed and qualified vouchers may be applied to a new prospective, first-semester, full-time college applicant only. Valid vouchers must accompany the Application for Enrollment and must contain the alumni information requested on the form. Only one (1) $500 voucher can be submitted per applicant. The voucher cannot be combined with the Alumni Legacy Scholarship.

Prepared for the World

“KCU was more than a University, it was also a home for me. Professors didn’t just worry about my grades, but
they knew about my life, provided counsel, encouraged me, and pushed me to grow. I felt that my education for
ministry was amazing and really helped prepare me for ministry. A lot of my spiritual mentors have come out of
KCU and also some lifelong friendships with fellow students. KCU might not be the biggest school, but it has one
of the biggest hearts.”

Cady Wurtz, Class of 2017 Graduate School
