Each year United Church of Christ Association Committees on Ministry are invited to nominate their Members in Discernment to be considered for a "Make A Difference! Educational Support Award." Members in Discernment must have the prior approval/nomination of their Committee on Ministry BEFORE starting this application.
Awards are available to UCC seminarians who are attending a seminary accredited by The Association of Theological Schools (ATS) in the United States.
Awards are applied to recipients' tuition and tuition-related expenses (books, fees, room and board or other educational expenses).
Applicants must demonstrate membership in a local United Church of Christ church for at least one year.
Applicants enrolled in a course of study leading to ordination must be Members in Discernment by the end of their first year in seminary and, subsequently, during the period for which the scholarship is given.
Applicants must demonstrate leadership ability as may be evidenced through participation in local church, Association, Conference and/or seminary activities.
Recipients will be expected to maintain a B average or better (or equivalent).
