Concordia’s Diversity Scholarship is a $500 annual award available to admitted first-year or transfer underrepresented U.S. students from traditionally underrepresented populations with financial need. This scholarship can be stacked on top of Excellence scholarships.

The Diversity Scholarship is an intentional effort to uphold Concordia’s commitment to the access of a diverse student population and the continuous work of inclusion as specified by our mission statement and vision of excellence within a liberal arts global education context.

"I am an African immigrant and hold my culture very dear to my heart. Concordia's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Commission has given me the opportunity to share my culture in a safe space."

Concordia College Statement on Diversity | Adopted 2018

Concordia College aspires to be a diverse community that affirms an abundance of identities, experiences, and perspectives in order to imagine, examine, and implement possibilities for individual and communal thriving. Critical thinking grounded in the liberal arts compels us to participate in intentional dialogue, careful self-reflection, and honest interactions about difference, power, and inequity. As responsible engagement in the world calls us to recognize worlds that are familiar or unfamiliar, visible or less visible, Concordia will act to increase and support diversity in all areas of college life.
