Fountain Park United Methodist Church
Fountain Park UMC offers two generous scholarship programs established by several long term members. Using monies donated from the Clarence and Ella Keller estate, a scholarship fund in their name was established in 1989. The second major donation was from the estate of Bernice Staege and was used to establish a scholarship program in her name in 2005.
The scholarships are awarded to recent high school graduates or to adults wishing to advance their careers by taking further post-secondary courses. The recipient must have been a member of Fountain Park Church for at least two years through confirmation, transfer of membership, or statement of faith.
Applications are available and the Scholarship Committee reviews the applications and usually selects around 5-10 recipients each year. Scholarships are awarded in early May and range from $1000 to $5000 depending on the recipient’s qualifications and the number of applicants. Further information can be obtained from Pastor Waddell.
Contact the FPUMC Church Office, 920-452-1319, for more information.
The application period for 2019 ended in April, 2019.
