Goodbye, old ways.
Hello, Summit Scholars.

Summit Scholars is a whole new approach to earning a high-quality bachelor’s degree: in just three years, with real world experience and contacts, and free of unnecessary debt. This is college on your terms.

Experience different.

Career - ready
in just 3 years.

Summit Scholars was developed to create a flexible, full spectrum of opportunities for learning and growth. Our program offers unique benefits that can make it a perfect choice for students eager to chart their own course and experience more than just academics—sooner than later.

Summit Scholars is an accelerated, 3-year bachelor’s degree program.

Offered in partnership between Grace College and Ambassador Enterprises, this faith-based, scholarship-driven and affordable program offers three Bachelor of Science degree options:


Prepare for a rewarding career where you can have a real impact on the physical, emotional, spiritual and mental health of our community.


Take the steps toward becoming a successful business leader, including valuable interaction with Ambassador Enterprises—a for-profit, philanthropic equity firm with global ties to other companies.


Pursue your passion and calling for ministry as you prepare to lead others in lives of service.


Summit Scholar’s unique blended learning model includes both online and in-residency experiences.

Our online coursework is part of Grace College’s established and effective online model, which runs at the pace of each individual student.

Each fall, spring and summer semester includes a symposium-style week of experiential learning at the state-of-the-art Summit Scholars campus in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

As full-fledged Grace College students, Summit Scholars are welcome to join other Grace students for study, worship and social programming on the college’s beautiful 180-acre campus in nearby Winona Lake, Indiana.

Here today. The world tomorrow.

Future leaders are better prepared for the challenges of our global community by exploring and understanding different cultures. Our optional global study tours give Summit Scholars students a unique-to-this-program opportunity to travel to several countries and experience cultural differences related specifically to their area of study.
