Education Endowment Scholarship

To Scholarship Applicants and Family:

United in Faith Lutheran Church has an established an Education Endowment Scholarship Fund which is available to members of our congregation. Students who have a financial need can apply for assistance. Eligible awards can be for any Christian pre-school through high school as well as any post-secondary school and can include special educational needs or gifts at any level of education.

Each application is carefully reviewed by the Education Endowment Scholarship Committee. Awards are based on need and funds available. The application forms are available in the church office and must be completed in full to be considered for a scholarship for the school year 2018-2019 & returned no later than February 28, 2018. Place the completed form in the church mail box marked “Scholarship” located in the hallway or give to any scholarship committee member. All information on the application will be treated as confidential.

According to the Constitution of United in Faith Lutheran Church the following requirements for a scholarship must be met:

 Applicants must be an active member of UIF Lutheran Church.

 Identify, to the best of your knowledge, all school related expenses for the school year, plus any other source of income or assistance you have to meet those expenses.

 Applicants and their parents(s)/guardian(s)/care giver(s) must participate in the life of United in Faith Church. This can include, but is not limited to: serving as an acolyte, usher, reader, or assisting minister, Sunday School aide or teacher, participation in fund raising activities, and assisting with church events to the extent that is reasonable and possible.

 Attendance at worship is required.

The Committee will then give careful consideration for awards on each application. Applicants will be notified of the Committee’s decision by March 31, 2018. An applicant may receive a scholarship in subsequent years as long as they meet the requirements. Scholarship amounts may vary from year to year based on the number of applicants and funds available each year.
