St. James UMC offers a number of scholarships to graduating high school seniors who are members of our church. The scholarships are funded by a variety of private foundations and by United Methodist Men. The applications for these college scholarships are now available in the Church Office.
The completed application, along with a current signed and sealed school transcript, must be returned to the Church Office by NEXT FRIDAY, May 7, 2021, at 5 p.m. EDT. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered. The Selection Committee of the Board of Trustees will meet in May to interview applicants and to award the scholarships. Recipients will be notified in late May.
High school seniors who are active members of St. James United Methodist Church are encouraged to apply. Applications will be scored on a rubric assessing church involvement, school performance and participation, community participation, and an interview with the committee.
Monetary donations are welcome to help supplement scholarships this year.
