Developing Whole Leaders for the whole World

Honoring those who are strong in Spirit, Mind and Body

The Whole Person concept - developing spirit, mind and body to become the person God wants you to be - is central to the mission of ORU. To encourage students in this pursuit, ORU offers the Quest Whole Leader Scholarship established through the gifts of generous donors with a heart for education and a belief in the work of the university.

In addition to developing intellectually, emotionally, spiritually and physically, students who receive this scholarship must demonstrate:

  • A Christian worldview
  • A lifestyle of service
  • Academic achievement
  • Leadership ability
  • Vision to make a life-changing impact on others
  • A healthy lifestyle

To be considered for the Quest Whole Leader Scholarship, a freshman or transfer student has to be nominated by a school, church or community leader or a member of the ORU faculty, staff or alumni. If you are selected as a nominee, you will be invited to campus for Scholarship Day Competitions in the fall or spring. Recipients are selected by the Scholarship Review Committee.
