The Finish Line scholarship is designated for upcoming Point seniors who exhibit leadership on campus, academic excellence in the classroom, and Christ-like service throughout the Point community. The scholarship funds assist in students’ tuition and fees during their final year at Point. Since its establishment, the Finish Line scholarship has positively impacted its recipients by enabling them to graduate college and go on to begin successful careers throughout the world.
