Information and Application

College and Graduate Scholarship Programs

Blessed with a history that deeply values education and with the generosity of four families in our community of faith, King Moravian Church now has four scholarships for students to continue their educational journey whether at a technical or trade school, community college, or university. Each scholarship is a one-time annual award for college students who are members in good standing at King Moravian Church and who have been accepted by an accredited institution for the upcoming school year. Preference is given to those expressing a financial need. Each award will be made payable to the institution of higher learning, half paid in the fall semester and half paid in the spring semester. Scholarship applications will be available at the Church Office beginning March 1st and must be returned no later than May 1st.
