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: Houston Baptist University in Texas
Houston 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.
Houston Baptist University was rated an “A” grade during the Christian Schools Project for not promoting Planned Parenthood to their students. The motto of their SFLA group, Pro-Life Huskies, sums up the pro-life movement’s mission as it pledges to “save babies, serve women, and support them both.”
Here are some accomplishments of the Houston Baptist University group:
- Throughout the group’s duration, they have provided several pregnant and parenting students with scholarship money to go towards their college education or other financial needs.
- This group also hosts different events to educate the student body about the horrors of abortion and the struggles faced by pregnant and parenting students.
- When the COVID-19 pandemic restricted in-person meetings, the Pro-Life Huskies continued their mission by going online and hosting lectures with notable speakers so that members could stay active by learning new things about the pro-life movement.
- This year, one of their officers, Annick Tankus, is working in collaboration with Houston Baptist University Involvement center to release educational materials about pro-life resources for students. Tankus is also helping with a food pantry/storage initiative to provide pregnant and parenting students access to the support they need whether on or off campus.
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 Houston Baptist University (Texas)!
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.
