G.T. Williams Fund

 

Explanation of Application Process

If you are a college or graduate student who is preparing for a career either as a/an:


ORDAINED MINISTER
CERTIFIED TEACHER OR EDUCATOR
DOCTOR OF MEDICINE

then you may qualify for a scholarship grant from the Gwilym T. Williams Scholarship Fund

This Trust Fund, created over a generation ago by a now deceased PNEC benefactor from Scranton, is administered by the Penn Northeast Conference of the United Church of Christ. The purpose of this Fund is to provide financial assistance for post-secondary students enrolled in accredited institutions of higher learning, and who are preparing to embark on a career either as an ordained minister, a certified teacher or educator, or a doctor of medicine.

Grants are limited by stipulation of the Trust to students pursuing one of these three career options, and who are also currently members in good standing of a PNEC congregation. Financial assistance will be awarded only to help pay the institution-stipulated costs of tuition and/or housing.

You are required to submit to the PNEC office ALL application materials (your application, certification of an acceptable program of study, your school’s financial bill) before your request will be considered. Application materials must be in our office by October 1st in order to be considered for a grant for the (preceding) summer and/or (current) fall terms, and by March 1st in order to be considered for a grant for the (preceding) winter and/or (current) spring terms. Reimbursement checks will be issued directly to successful applicants. Even if you have received a Gwilym T. Williams scholarship in the past, you must reapply in order to be considered for a new grant. Applicants are awarded a maximum ten grants for undergraduate work, and ten (more) grants for post-graduate studies.

The Application packet can be downloaded at the link below.
Please note: YOUR APPLICATION WILL NOT BE PROCESSED UNTIL ALL THREE APPLICATION MATERIALS ARE RECEIVED IN THE PNEC OFFICE.

If you have any questions, you are invited to contact Nancy Azar, who is most easily reached at:  NancyA@pnec.org
