Announcing the 2021 Sanders Scholar

January 11, 2021 Research Sanders Scholarship 0


In 2021, one student will receive a $3,910 scholarship award for original, supervised research related to creation and origins. The funding originates from the Sanders Scholarship Fund, which was established in 2018 by Core Academy of Science. Named in honor of Core Academy’s co-founder Roger W. Sanders (1950-2018), the Sanders Fund provides support for students to learn research skills from established mentors as they work together on a project of scholarly interest. We are very pleased to announce the second annual Sanders Scholars award. (For confidentiality and security, the last name of the recipient has been omitted.)

Our sole winner this year is Edward, who will be working under the guidance of Timothy Clarey of the Institute for Creation Research (Dallas, TX). He will be studying carbon dating, an active area of creation research for many years. Specifically, they will be carbon dating specimens of carbonized wood collected from a location in the Pacific Northwest. Edward is a resident of Washington state, and he’s currently working on his undergraduate degree in geoscience.

“I’m thrilled to congratulate Edward, as he joins the esteemed ranks of our past Sanders Scholars,” said Todd Wood, Core Academy president. “I’m look forward to seeing how God uses Edward’s work to further his kingdom.”

Core Academy of Science is a creationist ministry dedicated to nurturing the next generation of faithful, Christ-like creation scholars to explore the hardest problems in creation. Core Academy conducts workshops and retreats that help students to build relationships with experienced creation scholars and to explore the wonders of God’s creation. The Sanders Scholarship Fund advances the mission of Core Academy by providing financial support for students to work closely with a mentor to learn new skills and contribute to our understanding of creation.
