In December, 2021, Students for Life of America’s (SFLA) Demetree Institute for Pro-Life Advancement released its Christian Schools Project, investigating all 784 Christian schools across the country to identify any ties these Christian institutions have to the nation’s largest abortion vendor, Planned Parenthood.
Another goal of the Christian Schools Project was to encourage and identify schools which also support pregnant and parenting students on campus. SFLA is proud to introduce the Christian Schools Standing with You Scholarship Competition where we pick three Christian schools that are doing outstanding work for women on campus.
It’s time to highlight the amazing pro-life efforts of students who attend Christian colleges and universities across America who are setting the standard for great Christian schools. These groups have a passion for helping pregnant and parenting students on their Christian campus, and SFLA wants to award them for their efforts—with your help! By evaluating each school’s friendliness and support for parenting students on campus, we have narrowed it down to our top ten school groups, and now it’s up to you to help us choose the winner.
Check out one of the schools that made it to the top ten below: Oklahoma Baptist University
Oklahoma Baptist University is one of ten student groups competing to be in the top three of all Christian Schools that will earn a scholarship for pregnant and parenting students on campus and an award for their group activities for the upcoming year.
Oklahoma Baptist University was rated an A-grade during the Christian Schools Project for not promoting Planned Parenthood to their students. Their SFLA student group has recently brought the conversation of pregnant and parenting students to campus. Beginning this past school year, the group has been working with the administration at their school to help better support pregnant and parenting students on campus.
Here are some accomplishments of the Oklahoma Baptist University group:
- Their group hosted a collection of large tote bags, backpacks, and suitcases and donated them to children in foster care so they would not have to use trash bags to transport their belongings; their donation encompassed more than 120 bags.
- They also hosted a baby shower for a pregnant student couple on campus to provide them with vital resources and show support for their decision in choosing life.
- The group hosted a Share the Love Event, as well.
- They also have two future events coming up in April, 2022, which they’re excited about: a Memorial of the Innocents and a fundraiser for Hope Pregnancy Center in Oklahoma.
You can vote for this school to receive a $1,500 scholarship for a pregnant or parenting student on their campus and up to $500 to help their group activities for the upcoming year. Click HERE to vote for Oklahoma Baptist University!
And that’s not all, either—each of these three groups will also get to send two representatives to the National Leaders Collective. This is SFLA’s weekend of pro-life activism training for student leaders within our movement. At the National Leaders Collective, these two representatives will receive their award.
