Thank you for your interest in the Graham Family Endowment Scholarship. Since 1970, Jack and Deb Graham have committed themselves to ministering to others and sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, particularly through the local church. Believing that service to the local church is the most effective method to spread the Good News of our Lord to others, they have established a scholarship fund to be awarded annually to deserving high school seniors who have demonstrated a commitment to a life and career path of full-time Christian ministry, particularly one focused on working for a local church.
Consideration will be given to students who have shown Christian leadership and personal integrity, and have a financial need. The scholarship will cover tuition and course-related expenses.
