FUMCCG Educational Assistance Fund's Scholarship Program: Empowering the Next Generation to Reach Greater Heights!

Sixty-two years ago, in 1955, FUMCCG established the Educational Assistance Fund's Scholarship Program to honor students for their commitment to - and involvement in - the church while exemplifying strong Christian character. Today's Scholarship Program remains equally as committed to that goal, providing financial assistance to college-bound, full-time undergraduate and post-graduate students; including seminary students. Through generous contributions, the program helps deserving students achieve their college dreams while nurturing their faith and commitment to academic excellence.
