The Coley Springs Missionary Baptist Church Scholarship Committee is accepting scholarship applications for the upcoming academic year.

Applications are available from this story above, left, at Warren County High School, Warren Early College High School and Warren New Tech High School, from members of the scholarship committee and at the church.

Both high school seniors and college students are eligible for the scholarship. Applicants will be required to submit an essay explaining the need for the scholarship funds and how obtaining the scholarship will aid them in receiving their education.

Applicants are also required to submit letters of recommendation on letterhead from an active member of their church and from their school (college or high school). Only first semester college freshmen will be allowed to obtain a letter from high school.

An official transcript of high school/college grades from the previous semester on school letterhead in a sealed envelope should be attached to the scholarship application. Only first semester college freshmen may submit high school transcripts. If the application is submitted by email, the transcript must be emailed by the school.

If the scholarship application is approved, payment will be made directly to the student’s college.

Applications submission deadlines are June 1 for fall semester 2019 and Nov. 1 for spring semester 2020.

Completed applications may be returned to any member of the scholarship committee: Deacon Darius Herring, Trustee Arconstar Powell, Joyce Edmonds, Barbara Evans, Yarbrough Williams, Barbra Jones or Shauna Williams; emailed to the committee at coleyspringsscholarship@yahoo.com or returned to the church at PO Box 537, Warrenton, NC 27589.
