To help our high school seniors attend our quality schools, the Assemblies of God institutions and departments created the Riggs Scholarships, named after former General Superintendent Ralph Riggs, an early advocate for higher education in our AG Fellowship. Riggs, a formal faculty member at two of our colleges, believed that every high school graduate should have the opportunity to attend an AG endorsed college.

  • Two (one male, one female) of ten semi-finalists selected to receive General Superintendent National Scholarships (up to $30,000 each)
  • Eight semi-finalists receive one-time $5,000 scholarships



  • Currently attending an AG church
  • High school senior working toward acceptance into an AG endorsed college

  • Demonstrate leadership potential through involvement in an AG church, school, and community
  • Demonstrate a dedicated walk with God and a commitment to use his/her gifts toward Kingdom expansion


*  For the Superintendent’s award to continue, the student must maintain a 3.5 GPA and continue attendance and active involvement in an AG church while enrolled in school.
