Bedford Presbyterian Church has been providing awards from the Harold G. Williams Jr. Scholarship Fund to one or more applicants planning on continuing their education at a college, trade school or graduate degree program in the fall of the year in which the scholarship is awarded.
Recognition and awards will occur on Graduation Sunday, June 5, 2022, during the 10 AM worship service. Recipients will receive notification by Friday, June 3. Completed applications must be submitted no later than Sunday, May 29, 2022.
Overseen by the Deacons, this year, two applicants will be awarded scholarships in the amount of $500 each. Special consideration may be given to a student in seminary or a student involved in mission work.
The requirements for being awarded the Harold G. Williams Scholarship are as follows: the recipient must 1) be a member of Bedford Presbyterian Church community; 2) be attending or planning to attend college, trade school, or graduate program in the coming fall.
No academic or financial need restrictions are placed in this scholarship. Each applicant will be considered according to their own merit, with confidentiality and discretion by the Deacon Scholarship Committee. However, a demonstrated commitment to Bedford Presbyterian Church and serving others is a subjective criterion. Past scholarship recipients may reapply as long as they meet the requirements criteria.
