College scholarships available

The Florida United Methodist Foundation is now accepting applications from first-year, college-bound United Methodist students for the 2017 Sinclair scholarships. We are proud that Jessica Evangelista, a member of Cypress Lake UMC, was one of five students from across Florida selected to receive a Sinclair scholarship last year.

Applicants must be full and active members of a Florida United Methodist church, have a record of church and community service, and have a grade point average of 2.5 or higher or academic performance that indicates ability to succeed in college. They must also be planning to attend a Florida or United Methodist college or university this fall.

Scholarship awards range from $2,000 to $3,000 and are renewable for up to three additional years for students who remain in good standing. The deadline to apply is
March 20.

scholarship application and other required forms are available for download on the foundation’s website. More information is available by contacting Nadara Brock at or 866-363-9673, ext. 7113, or visiting
