Make checks payable to: St. Andrews AME Church – Scholarship Fund

 

In 2012, the ‘scholarship ministry’ was charged with creating a fair and transparent scholarship application process for high school graduating seniors intending to pursue a college education, encouraging financial congregation support, and awarding scholarships.

Since 2012 to the present the ‘ministry’ has expanded its scope to include: providing supplementary scholarship resources, conducting student workshops including understanding both the scholarship application and college admissions process and collaborating with the YPD – keeping our eyes on the prize.

The ministry’s goal then and now is to recognize recipients for their active participation in St. Andrews’ activities. The scholarship fund has been blessed to receive generous donations and contributions from both this congregation, friends and loved ones, and our civic community. For this ongoing support, the ministry is grateful.

2018 college-bound students are Logan Ruggles and Kennedy Simpson – headed for the University of California, Santa Barbara and  University of California, Berkeley respectively and for great success. Please lift them in your prayers. For this and more the ministry is extremely grateful for seasons of excellence.
