The pro-life movement gets larger--and younger--by the day.

Last year, we established the 4040 Scholarship to honor pro-life college students who heroically stand up for life on campus and in front of abortion facilities.

This scholarship is generously donated by a father whose daughter participated in the first ever 40 Days for Life campaign. She saved six babies as a sidewalk counselor before passing away to cancer. Today, her legacy lives on through this $4,040 scholarship.

Apply or share with a college undergrad, graduate student, or high school senior who is helping to end abortion.

Apply on the 40 Days for Life mobile app by December 15 and receive the award on the stage at the West Coast Walk for Life in San Francisco on January 26.

Apply for the 4040 Scholarship

Scholarship: The winner will be awarded a $4,040 college scholarship and flown to San Francisco with a parent or guardian to receive the award on-stage at the Walk for Life West Coast in January.
