The Church by the Side of the Road has been generously endowed by church members who have, through gifts and memorials, established a variety of scholarship funds that provide financial resources to be awarded to students (undergrad, grad, CC, and trade school) each year. The value of each scholarship will vary according to the returns on the invested funds and the number of qualified applicants.
1. Applications may be picked up at the church office or may be acquired from the church website.
2. Completed applications, current school transcript(s), a letter of recommendation and a photo must be returned (via email or U.S. mail) to the Scholarship Committee at the Church by the Side of the Church by Side of the Road office by April 30th.
3.Please check with the church office to verify that your application has been received by the church. It’s preferred that applications be typed. Additional paper may be used if more room is needed for any responses. It’s most important that your responses are detailed and complete to help the Scholarship Committee better know you. Any questions should be directed to the Scholarship Committee acting chairperson who is currently Mrs. Arizona Proctor.
4. After reviewing all applications, the Scholarship Committee will contact all applicants by mail. The scholarship recipients will be invited to the presentation of awards during a worship service in June. Recipients are expected to attend this presentation. If unable to attend, the student must contact the chairperson of the Scholarship Committee prior to the awards service (a family member may represent the winner).
5. This application is for one academic school year; however a student may reapply in following years if qualifications are met. Students may only receive a total of four scholarships per degree or certificate.
