Announcing the 2022 Sanders Scholar

December 21, 2021 Research Sanders Scholarship 0


In 2022, one student will receive a $4,000 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 Peter, who will be working right here with us at Core Academy of Science under the guidance of Todd Wood. Peter will be studying fossil cave men, a subject Dr. Wood has been carefully studying for more than a decade. They’ve already been working on this project for a year remotely, and this scholarship money will facilitate extra in-person collaboration and study.

“This is the first time we have supervised a Sanders Scholar directly here at Core Academy,” said Todd Wood, Core Academy president. “Peter will be a great Sanders Scholar, since his work is top-notch.  I’m really looking forward to working with him even more!”

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.  Since 2020, the Sanders Fund has given away nearly $20,000 to support student mentoring.  If you would like to make a contribution to the Sanders Fund, please visit
