Last year, The New York Times made a startling admission.

It acknowledged that while young people lean left politically, many in Generation Z vote conservative because they are increasingly pro-life.

Motivated by the knowledge that abortion wiped out more than a quarter of their peers, young people are hitting the streets to pray for an end to abortion.

To incentivize and honor these inspiring young people, we launched the 4040 Scholarship--a $4,040 college scholarship awarded annually to a college student whose leadership is saving lives.

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.

Application deadline: December 15, 2021--no exceptions!

Eligibility: Full-time undergraduate or graduate students in the United States who are involved in the pro-life movement are eligible to receive the scholarship.

The 4040 Scholarship is sponsored by a donor inspired by the contributions young people are making toward ending abortion.

2020 4040 Scholarship winner John Mark Porter was initially reluctant to speak out about abortion...

...but he overcame his fears to serve as a sidewalk counselor, 40 Days for Life participant, citizen lobbyist, campus debate organizer, and pregnancy help center volunteer. He even launched a student initiative to provide babysitting to student parents and developed a way to beam pro-life resources into abortion facility waiting rooms!

After surviving the 1999 Columbine High School massacre, 2021 scholarship winner Jenica Thornby struggled with despair--until she encountered Jesus Christ.

"I want everybody to know the Lord..." she said. "...and the full and abundant life that He’s called us to.”

Now a religious sister named Sister Mary Gianna, she is a regular 40 Days for Life participant pursuing a nursing degree.

You or a loved one could win $4,040 for college tuition AND join us on the stage at the Walk for Life West Coast in San Francisco. Don't delay. The application deadline is December 15!
