Educating and Empowering Youth


The CCSA Scholarship Program encourages and promotes the attainment of higher educational goals for youth who demonstrate good academic records and upstanding personal qualities.

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not” – Galatians 6:9

The CCSA Scholarship program was established to award money to graduating high school seniors. Through our partnership with San Antonio Livestock Exposition, Inc. (S.A.L.E.), Aramark, CPS Energy, Frost Bank, Spurs Foundation, Valero Energy, Wells Fargo, N.A. and other corporations we have awarded over $2,000,000 in scholarships.  In 2010, the non-traditional scholarship was established to provide financial assistance to adults who are currently attending or have been accepted into a school of higher learning and display a financial burden.
