The vision and generosity of prior First Church members created three First Church scholarship endowments. The endowments currently help support seventeen undergraduate students and two postgraduate ministerial students. The Torrance Scholarship Fund and the Morita Clark Scholarship Fund each serve to support students selected on considerations including academic achievement and promise, service in the church and community and financial need. The Ministerial Scholarship Fund supports postgraduate students with a First Church association preparing for the ministry or studying to become church workers in areas such as music ministry, children’s ministry or youth ministry.
Scholarship information brochures and application forms for the 2014 – 2015 academic year will be available from the church office.
