FRLC Post-Secondary Youth Scholarship Fund
 
A scholarship fund has been established for high school graduates of FRLC who will be attending a college or university. Since the origin of the fund in 2010, FRLC has made $26,000 available to the graduates of our congregation.

Scholarship certificates are given to the graduates as part of our annual congregational recognition of graduates. Then, upon receipt of appropriate school registration information and student I.D., our congregational treasurer will issue a check ($500) and send it directly to the school or institution where the student is enrolled, for crediting to his or her account. 
 
The graduate must complete and submit the scholarship application no later than May 1 of the year the student graduates from high school to be eligible for the scholarship, even if the student defers college for one year. Awards will be equal and are not based on particular merit or need.


The graduate must meet the following requirements to be eligible:
  1. Be a confirmed Lutheran.
  2. Be a member of French River Lutheran Church.
  3. Students must attend a minimum of 12 FRLC church services between September 1, 2020 and May 1, 2021. To document attendance, students must sign the bulletin for the FRLC church service they attended and have the usher at that service sign the bulletin.  Students need to place the bulletin in their personal scholarship envelope located in the Youth mail slot just outside of the church office. It is the responsibility of each student to ensure their signed bulletin is in the envelope.
  4. If in-building church services are not held, the student may watch the FRLC service online.  In order to have the online service satisfy the attendance requirement, the student must complete a set of questions about the service. These questions will be provided prior to September 1, 2020 if we are not holding in-building church services. To document attendance, students must sign the bulletin/announcement document for the FRLC online church service and place the answers to the questions and the signed bulletin/announcement document in their personal scholarship envelope located in the Youth mail slot just outside of the church office. Again, it is the responsibility of each student to ensure their signed bulletin and question answers are in the envelope.
  5. Signed bulletins must be in the personal scholarship envelope within four weeks of attending the service. Bulletins submitted later than four weeks after a service will not be accepted.
  6. Submit the scholarship application no later than May 1, 2021 to the church office.
  7. Strict compliance to the criteria above is required to be eligible for the scholarship.
 
These criteria reflect our church family’s commitment to support both your faith formation and your postsecondary education.
