Again this year, the FDUMM will award scholarships to deserving young men in our district. The 2017 Scholarship Application and Guidelines are attached. Please make sure all eligible (criteria are in the Guidelines) young men in your church are aware of this Scholarship.
In 2016, we awarded scholarships to 13 young men who were all very deserving of the award. The scholarships were awarded out of our Scholarship Fund which totaled $5,000 in 2016.
Our Scholarship Fund is generated from two sources:
1) Contributions from local UMM groups.
Last year, the Fund received contributions from 13 of our UMM groups: Apex, Ebenezer, Goldston, Holly Springs, Jonesboro, Page Memorial (Aberdeen), Pinehurst, Piney Grove, St. Francis, St. Luke, Smyrna, Sunrise and West End.
It would be great if we could get the number of contributions up to 20 this year! (A UMM group with a Scholarship applicant must contribute at least $150 to the Fund.)
2) Our Golf Tournament.
This year our Golf Tournament will be on Thursday May 18 at Whispering Woods Golf Club in Whispering Pines. The flyer/registration form for the tournament is attached. Last year, we had 12 teams in the tournament. This year, we’d like to have 18 teams (72 golfers). It’s not too early to put your teams together and send in your registrations.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for all you do,
