Grand Juntion, CO (PRWEB) February 25, 2005
The Christian Connector (http://www.ChristianConnector.com), a virtual one-stop online shop where students can receive free information from Christian colleges, graduate schools, seminaries and missions organizations, today announced that each student requesting information on their site will be automatically entered into a $1,000.00 Christian college scholarship drawing.
The Christian Connector currently has over 90 Christian colleges from which students can choose. Unlike most students who must research Christian colleges and request information from them one at a time, students who fill out the siteÂs Free Information Form experience the convenience of requesting information from as many institutions as they like simultaneously, all from just one site. In this way, The Christian Connector acts as a huge virtual ÂChristian college fairÂ without the student ever having to leave home.
ÂWe are unique in that we are the only organization of our kind that works exclusively with Christian colleges,Â says Thom Seagren, Founder and President of The Christian Connector. ÂIn addition, the information we provide is at absolutely no charge to the student, and our services are 100% opt-in, so students only receive information they have requested.Â
The Christian Connector also assists prospective students by offering a variety of resources on its site, including pages with tips on financial aid and admissions, where high school students and others can browse articles on a range of financial aid and college related topics. Prospective students may also utilize links to Christian colleges, and learn about missionsÂ opportunities.
The process to request information from the organizations of a studentÂs choice is effortless. Students simply fill out a free Information Request Form. Once they submit it, a list of Christian colleges ordered by the studentÂs geographic interest appears. The last step entails checking a box next to each college, university or Bible college for which the student would like to receive immediate information. The process is seamless, with the institution receiving a copy of the Information Request Form so it can respond to the studentÂs request directly. Depending on the institution, the information provided includes material ranging from brochures and application forms to personal contact.
After submitting a request for information on The Christian Connector, students are automatically entered into a $1,000.00 scholarship drawing, which is being independently funded by the organization. Three lucky individuals will be randomly selected to receive a $1,000.00 scholarshipÂone for a person who will attend a Christian college or Bible college (undergraduate), one for a person who will be attending a seminary or Christian graduate school (graduate level) and one individual participating in a missions trip or who will be a career missionary. The winners must meet the guidelines posted on The Christian Connector site at http://www.christianconnector.com/drawing-rules.cfm, and will be selected after May 31st of each year. While individuals may utilize the siteÂs request form and services as often as they wish, they will only be entered into the drawing once.
ÂI feel strongly that many Christian colleges and universities offer a superior education to their secular counterparts as they encourage students both intellectually and spiritually,Â says Seagren. ÂWe are offering the $1,000.00 scholarship drawing as an incentive to prospective students.Â Based on his strong commitment to Christian education, Seagren plans to continue the scholarship drawing yearly.
