Scholarship Expectations

These post-trip gatherings could include a congregational reflection session, a Minute for Mission in worship, a presentation during Sunday Night Youth Fellowship, etc.

Non-First Presbyterian Church Experiences
For trips and experiences that are not directly sponsored by First Presbyterian Church of Annapolis (i.e. Presbytery Partnership trips, denominational workshops, etc.), funds will be sent directly to the sponsoring organization.

Scholarship funds are typically transferred directly to the sponsoring mission/education group and are NOT paid directly to the individual. If you are applying for scholarship assistance for a mission/education experience sponsored by someone other than First Presbyterian Church of Annapolis, please indicate who and where your scholarship money should be sent:
