In honour of CCO’s 30th Anniversary, we announced the creation of the

St. Ignatius of Loyola CCO Scholarship

This scholarship is named after St Ignatius of Loyola, who reached out to a group of university students (including St Francis Xavier), helped them to encounter Jesus, and with them sought to change the world by founding the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits). This scholarship seeks to recognize students involved with CCO who contribute to the new evangelization and leadership on our campuses.

CCO challenges students to be leaders in the renewal of the world.
And we want to honour those who are.

Are you a student involved with CCO on campus?
Does anything here apply to you?

  • Led CCO faith studies
  • Been on the CCO Student Executive
  • Been mentored by CCO
  • Been on a CCO mission
  • Been involved in the worship band
  • Intentionally invested in another CCO student
  • Been involved in CCO in some other leadership capacity

Two scholarships valued at $1988 each will be awarded this year in honour of CCO having been founded on October 18, 1988.
