At Covenant Eyes, we don’t just care about keeping you safe online (though that is of course the entire point of Internet Accountability). Rather, we want to help you live a lifestyle of integrity. Not only does that mean protecting your Internet use, but it’s also about being honest and accountable in everything you do, wherever you go.
To show our support to students who demonstrate integrity, we’re giving scholarships away to Covenant Eyes users who are enrolled in college full-time in the fall. To apply, all these students have to do to is fill out a brief form and answer two questions:
- How do you use Covenant Eyes, and how has it impacted your life?
- How do you strive to demonstrate a life of integrity in your academic, social, and spiritual pursuits?
Applications are due July 1, 2014. Read our scholarship application for more details, including the exact wording of the essay questions. You can also read one of the winning essays from 2011.

I misread this and thought my daughter, whom we are diligently trying to finance her first year of college this fall (is enrolling, as we walk by faith). She does not use Covenant Eyes. However, I finally thought it was the right time to tell her about one month ago that I am a former sexual addict to pornography and masturbation, and no minister to men and am an accountability partner through Covenant Eyes. She not only was receptive and accepting of what I told her, but she has a heart to help others and share the gospel. If there is any chance she can apply, I would appreciate it. If not, that’s okay too. My name is Thomas Brian Carney. I have sent several emails in the past, live in Fort Worth, Texas. Thanks for what you all do in His Name.
Hi Thomas, unfortunately she needs to be a Covenant Eyes user to be eligible. However, if she starts using it this year, she will be eligible next year, assuming we offer it again (it’s likely, but not guaranteed).
As a side note, we’ve heard some parents talk about sending their college-age children their own accountability reports and letting the student lead the accountability discussion. Just something to consider if she decides to sign up.
