St. Andrew College Scholarships

Deadline: May 1, 2017

The church is currently offering two $500 scholarships for the coming school year and will be continued to be offered in the coming years. A recipient can only receive the scholarship for one year.

Any under-graduate or graduate student may apply and can be in any year of their education. The scholarship is available to those attending any institution of higher education including Ivy Tech.

An application is online here

The two scholarships will be awarded based equally on (1) academic achievement, (2) involvement in St. Andrew UMC, (3) leadership in the community, and (4) financial need.

The application can be filled out online with certain documentation turned into the church office by May 1, 2017

The funds for these scholarships were provided by Loraine Edwards. Ms. Edwards donated funds to provide scholarships to deserving applicants. Loraine Edwards was an active, long-time member of St. Andrew (50 years at least). Loraine lived to be almost 107 and she volunteered in the office helping with the newsletters and the Sunday bulletins until a year before her death. She is still serving her church family by seeing that there are monies to support young college students from our congregation. What a gift she was and still is!
