Sanders Scholars

exploring the hardest problems in creation


Roger W. Sanders Memorial Scholarship

The Sanders Scholarship Fund supports faculty mentoring of original student research and scholarly activity related to creation and origins.  Projects should contribute to the development and understanding of the young-age creationist model of origins.  We want to find and support the next generation of creationist scholars!

The 2020 Sanders Scholarships

Core Academy of Science will award two scholarships for the 2020 calendar year.  Each scholarship will consist of up to $4,000 for research or scholarly activity and up to $1,000 travel support for the student to attend the annual Origins conference, organized by the Creation Biology and Creation Geology Societies.  The funds can be used for research supplies, travel for field work, equipment, or any other research-related expenses.  Any field related to creation and origins is eligible—biblical studies, theology, history, as well as the traditional sciences.


Am I eligible?

  • Eligible students must be full-time undergraduate or graduate students with at least a 3.0 GPA.
  • Eligible students and mentors must affirm by signature Core Academy’s statement of faith.
  • Eligible mentors should be established scholars but need not be a faculty member. In the absence of a mentor, students may apply to work directly with Core Academy.

Thank you for your interest in the Sanders Scholarship Fund.  We are no longer receiving Applications for the 2020 Sanders Scholarships, but we will call for new proposals in the spring for the 2021 awards.  In the mean time, you may still access the application guide and our faith statement.



Who was Dr. Roger Sanders?

Roger W. Sanders (1950-2018) was a botanist and cofounder of Core Academy of Science. Roger demonstrated his passion for mentoring students by supervising student research at Bryan College and starting a fund to support creationist students from his alma mater, College of the Ozarks. After his sudden passing in 2018, Core Academy of Science established the Roger W. Sanders Memorial Scholarship Fund to carry on his legacy of mentoring students.
