First United Methodist Church is committed to encouraging the young people who are members of our congregation, as well as others throughout our community, in their pursuit of higher education.
A number of families within our congregation have set up “memorial” or “in honor of” scholarships to provide financial support and encouragement to young students during their college career. The church awards scholarships in various amounts in August of each year to undergraduate and seminary students. Priority will always be given to graduating high school seniors. Some of the scholarships have specific requirements that also must be followed.
Applications are available in February and all three components must be submitted by March 31st.
The committee makes selections in April, and they are awarded at the senior breakfast in May. Questions regarding scholarships may be directed to Denise Van Atta, firstname.lastname@example.org or 850-432-1434.
