To encourage the youth of our church congregation in a continuing educational process by providing a Scholarship Award each year. We research for funding and information on other available resources for financial aid. We network with various local organizations, church auxiliaries, state and national programs to gather information on the scholarships or grants they may be sponsoring for students seeking to attain a higher education.
To assist in directing those who wish to seek scholarship/grant funding through various avenues of available resources.
