From its inception in 1991, the Women's Ministries scholarship program has given 2,461 scholarships in 132 countries amounting to more than $1 million dollars.
Scholarships disbursed for winter semester went to 49 outstanding women.
The funds were sent to 15 countries including China, Fiji, Lebanon, and Zambia.
The higher education fields of study at 21 colleges range from Addiction Science, Community Development, and Education to Linguistics, and more.
Scholarships awarded for Madagascar students helped 9 young women.
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 supported the scholarship program. However, twenty-five years later, the book royalties alone are not enough to fund the scholarships needed each semester. Your individual donations greatly help.
