Boone United Methodist Women
Scholarship Report 2020
It is a mission of the Boone United Methodist Women to offer scholarships to deserving applicants to assist with their financial needs at post high school education levels. The applicants must demonstrate financial need and there are NO restrictions based on the age, race, religion, or gender with priority given to undergraduate studies or non-traditional/adult students.
The recipients are chosen on financial need and strength of the application as the names are not revealed until the final review process. We are pleased to announce the scholarship recipients for this year:
