The Scholarship Committee of the Mississippi United Methodist Foundation met this summer and awarded $62,056 in scholarships to 42 students.
The foundation’s scholarship program continues to grow as people set up scholarship endowments to fund a particular area of education, or a particular college or university. Many of the endowments are created in memory or honor of someone who helped the donor or to assist people who otherwise would not be financially able to continue their pursuit of an education.
Funds awarded included:
• $37,703 to 34 students attending junior college, community college or a senior college or university
• $24,353 to eight students attending seminary
