Scholars in January 2018
Scholarships assist women who are committed to using their education to further serve the mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
As always, the divisions recommend dedicated students who are active in school, church, and community, as well as diligent and hardworking in their studies.
As just one example, Valeria's teacher said of her,
"She is one of the most remarkable students I have known in my 20 years of teaching."
Fundraising Goal for 2018
The royalties of the women's daily devotional book series published since 1993 have helped support the scholarship program. Book royalties alone are not enough to fund the scholarships. Donations and fundraising projects are vital to keeping this program alive.
