Escondido United Methodist Foundation (EUMF)
Introduction to 2019-2020 Scholarship Application
The Escondido United Methodist Foundation looks forward to helping with your scholastic and vocational goals. Your continued focus on achieving your personal goals in living a Christian life to its fullest is highly encouraged by the Foundation. Please provide all the requested information below. The Foundation Scholarship Review Board will then review your completed application and determine the scholarship awards.
The Foundation Scholarship Review Board will be assessing your application with several criteria in mind. As aforementioned, we are particularly interested in clearly explained educational aspirations, as well as your spiritual focus and goals. Participation in the life of our church, currently or recently, is a major requirement. We will be looking for essays that demonstrate thoughtfulness, attention to detail (spelling, punctuation, etc.), and thoroughness, while avoiding repetition. If you have applied in the past, your essay should reflect current insights, how previous awards have assisted you, and perhaps newly developed goals.
This year, to assist in our application process, all applicants who reside in our area will be asked to participate in an interview with Foundation Board members. Please sign up for your preferred date and time when you complete the application.
Please note that the scholarship amounts will be based on the information that you provide in this application. If your student status changes (for example from full to part time), the award amount will be adjusted accordingly. The award will be distributed on a semester basis after we have received your proof of enrollment for that semester.
Names and pictures of scholarship recipients may be published in church publications.
We hope these guidelines will be helpful as you complete your application.
