Lake Toxaway United Methodist Church (LTUMC) Scholarship Program Background Information and Mission
We, the congregation of Lake Toxaway United Methodist Church, give glory to God for honoring us with the opportunity to award scholarships to assist worthy students in continuing their post-secondary education with priority given to students who live in the local area.
LTUMC invites students who meet the requirements contained herein to complete the provided application form and return it to the Scholarship Committee by April 15th of the applicable year with assurance that personal information will remain confidential. Our congregation will honor the recipients of LTUMC scholarships throughout their enrollment in an approved post-secondary program of studies, even if they change their program or school.
We want to share ourselves and our life experiences with our scholarship recipients. As our congregation is a deep repository of successful life experience which can be shared with our scholars, we want to provide caring volunteers who offer support in addition to the monetary award, which is currently $1,500 annually for the first year, to be reviewed annually. After applications and transcripts are reviewed, students may be awarded $2,000 the second year, $2,500 the third year, and $3,000 the fourth year.
Our mission is to provide students access to a quality, values-based education that helps them reach their potential, focused on making sure they are college and career ready, and providing opportunities while continuing to support them during and after their college life. Providing guidance and support is an integral part of our scholarship program as we share ourselves spiritually, morally, and professionally with our scholars: helping them build their self-esteem and awareness of themselves and the world around them, identifying a career and setting goals to attain it, and making good decisions. In a student’s words: how to get a good life, get a good job, make good money, and be a good person.
