UNITED METHODIST FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIPS
Generations of church members have joyfully and generously provided funds to assist FUMC college students. These "forever gifts" reflect the contributors’ support for education and the future of the church. Each scholarship is granted with loving gratitude to the donor and with pride in our students.
Applications are now being accepted for Fall 2013 scholarships. Candidates may include currently-active members of the FUMC family, including those away at school. High school seniors, undergraduate and graduate students, and those in accredited trade schools are invited to apply. Students who have previously received Foundation scholarships for two or more years will be considered only after newer applicants have been evaluated. Grant amounts will depend on the number of qualified applicants and funds available. Criteria include:
- evidence of a growing Christian faith
- active participation in an FUMC program
- potential leadership in church, community, and career
- consistently strong school performance
Applications and information are available in the Foundation mailbox at the Montgomery church office, at the InformationTable at Stony Point, and online at umfsr.org. The deadline for completed applications is May 15, 2013.
