Endowed Foundation Scholarship
In 2001, the merit-based Endowed Foundation Scholarship was created and awarded to its first recipient, Libby Jenkins. The following year the broad scope Annual Church scholarship was established and awarded to three students – Mark Jenkins, Zach Bennett and Laura Joost. Today, thirteen years and many donations later, the First United Methodist family has awarded over $52,000 to 77 deserving students to encourage them as they further their education. It is a pleasure each year for the church, the FUMC Foundation and the anonymous selection group to see the accomplishments of these young applicants and to help them develop their God given talents through education. Continuing in that tradition, FUMC is proud to announce the distribution of over $3500 to the 2014 recipients of the Endowed Foundation scholarship and Annual Church scholarships.
