The Presbyterian Scholarship Fund is available for freshmen college students who reside in the western half of the Synod of the Trinity and who are planning to attend a college in that area. The opportunity is open to students in the presbyteries of Beaver-Butler, Kiskiminetas, Lake Erie, Pittsburgh, Redstone, Shenango, Upper Ohio Valley and Washington. Participating colleges include College of Wooster, Davis and Elkins, Grove City, Muskingum, Washington and Jefferson, Waynesburg and Westminster. Applicants must be a member of the Presbyterian Church, be accepted to a full-course of study at a participating college, and demonstrate financial need.
The Presbyterian Scholarship Fund was established in 1843 to provide scholarships for Presbyterian students at seven Presbyterian related colleges within Western Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. Using proceeds from current investments, the fund provides $33,600 in aid annually for 28 students. The scholarship is renewable provided the student meets the school’s requirements for continued eligibility.
