The Centennial UMC Foundation invites candidates to apply for the 2016 Divinity Scholarship. The purpose of the scholarships is to give financial support to those who are in formal education to enter Christian Ministry on a full-time, professional basis.
These scholarships jointly honor Rev. Marlen Johnson, Centennial’s first minister, and Dr. Harry Kitts, charter member of Centennial and a noted agricultural educator.
To be considered for a scholarship, the applicant should meet the following criteria:
- Be enrolled on September 1, 2016 in a seminary or graduate school listed by the University Senate per The Book of Discipline;
- Show professional promise;
- Show financial need for this scholarship;
- State his or her intention to serve in the Minnesota Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.
To be eligible for consideration, a completed application, plus certified transcript and three letters of reference must be returned to Centennial Church by November 1, 2016. If you applied for the scholarship last year, please contact us about what you need to submit in your application.
You will be notified of your award status in early December. The scholarships will be awarded during morning worship at Centennial Church on December 18. If you are granted a scholarship, we will request you join us at one of the morning worship services and a brief response, and ask you to provide a photo of yourself.
Please send complete scholarship application, transcript and letters of reference to:
