The Bushy Pond Baptist Church has been generously endowed by Pastor James E. Holiday to establish an academic scholarship to be bestowed upon college or university bound high school graduates that are members of the Bushy Pond Family. This scholarship is awarded to a full-time undergraduate student each year. The value of the scholarship will vary according to invested funds and the number of qualified applicants.
Applications will become available at sometime in June during the year of application. Applications may be accessed from the link provided in the left margin of this webpage.
Completed applications, current high school
transcript(s), a copy of the applicant’s college or university acceptance
letter, the applicant’s college or university student identification number,
and the required type written essay must be returned to the Director of
Christian Education at the Bushy Pond Baptist Church office by July 31, 2019. It
is preferred that application be typed. Additional paper may be used if more
room is needed for any responses. It is most important that your responses are
detailed and complete to help the Scholarship Committee better know you. Any
questions should be directed to the Scholarship Committee chairperson.
Del-Gratia Jones serves in that position.
After reviewing all applications, the
Scholarship Committee will contact all applicants by mail. The scholarship
recipient will be invited to the presentation of awards during an announced
worship service in August.
