The First United Methodist Church of Redding Memorial Scholarshipjeremyj

The FUMC Scholarship Commission has aided dozens of church members in furthering their education. From a source of occasional fund raising, shrewd investment by The Endowment Fund Commission, United Methodist Women donations, and those passing along a part of their estate, we are able to give scholarships on a yearly basis. Each June, we present financial awards to students for the coming school year.

The scholarship program was started by Jack and Marjorie Dickinson.


Deadline: March 31st, 2018
