With prices rising across the United States, Sterling has taken great care in keeping tuition, room and board affordable and competitive with other institutions including the local state colleges and universities. Our ability to keep student costs low comes, in part, from financial contributions from our alumni and friends of the College who believe in Sterling’s mission of developing creative and thoughtful leaders who understand a maturing Christian faith.
Whether it is funding a scholarship for a deserving student, contributing to the annual fund to sustain operations, memorializing a family member or special person forever through an endowed gift, many opportunities exist for you to make a difference. This section of the website provides many different avenues for you to accomplish your passion. The advancement staff is prepared to be of assistance to you. We are here to serve you!
On behalf of Sterling College, the Office of Institutional Advancement would like to say, “Thank you!” The future is bright for Sterling College and your generous donation helps further our vision of becoming the finest Christ-centered, servant leadership development-focused, liberal arts experience on the Great Plains.
