Our alumni are called to live out Concordia’s mission of positively influencing the affairs of the world.

The National Alumni Board Gold Scholarship, valued at $25,000, was created in 2020 to recognize students who have the potential to impact the communities in which they live, work, and lead — in college and beyond. This award replaces all other Concordia scholarships and gift assistance.
