This program is designed to provide educational funds for Salvation Army soldiers of the Metropolitan Division. Scholarships are available for studies of all undergraduate work, and master’s level graduate work. Scholarships will be awarded by the Metropolitan Scholarship Committee by September 2018.
Applications are DUE by Friday, July 6, 2018! Applications will not be accepted after this date.
Funds for the Metropolitan College Scholarship program will come from earnings of the Stubblefield Endowment. Scholarships will not be paid from the principle; therefore the number of grants given will depend upon the earnings available each year.
Individuals may apply for scholarships in subsequent years, but awards are not guaranteed. No scholarships are made retroactive for past schooling expenses. Funds are limited, and priority will be given to those earning their first degree. Individuals may receive scholarship funding of up to $10,000 for college. No scholarships will be granted in excess of $10,000 cumulative.
