Our Endowment at Work: Scholarship Opportunities

The May and Deal families blessed our church by giving planned gifts to be used as scholarships for higher education. The Scholarship Committee is now accepting
applications for the May-Deal Scholarships for the 2024-2025 academic year.

The requirements are as follows:

  • Applicants shall be residents of Arkansas.
  • Applicants shall need financial assistance for higher education.
  • Applicants shall not be on full scholarship.
  • Undergraduate applicants must be full-time students.
    The application process is competitive for a fixed pool of scholarship funds. Usually, in-coming freshmen applicants need to be in the upper 20% of their high school class. Those already in college must be in good standing and on schedule to graduate with
    their freshman class.
