Dear American Baptist Friends of Vermont and New Hampshire:
Applications are now available for the ABW Scholarships for 2021-2022. This scholarship is available for all full-time college students who are members in our VT/NH ABC churches. This scholarship is really a combined ABW/ABC one.
Moneys for this scholarship comes from several sources. The ABC Region has four memorial scholarships. Money from three of these are given to the ABWomen to manage. This is usually around $1800.00 a year. The fourth is given to the Life Tree School of Ministry. Other money comes from the offering taken at the ABC Annual Gathering. The third source is from the women’s groups and the women themselves.
Since we have not had an annual gathering in person this past year and I’m not sure that we will this year before the summer, I am asking for donations to this fund from the churches and members of the churches in this Region. They may be sent to ABWMinistries/VNH care of me at Mary P. Hamblett, 20 Beaver Lake Avenue, Derry, NH 03038-4003.
This past year we had nine scholarship recipients, each getting $500.00. These students may reapply for the coming year. Applications for this scholarship have been sent to them. New applications for 2021-2022 are available by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am sending a list of these students so that you may uphold them with your prayers as they finish this very difficult semester. They come from our churches and are the future of our churches.
If you have any questions, please get in touch with me.
In Christ’s service,
Mary Hamblett, ABW Scholarship Chair
