Christ Church Scholarship Commission

The Education and Scholarship Commission is committed to supporting, aiding, and assisting all in our community who wish to pursue education and further their skills but lack the means to accomplish this critical goal. We consider this mission a sacred obligation.

About the Scholarship Program

Scholarships and Grants

We provide Florida Prepaid 4 Year Scholarships covering tuition costs for 120 credit hours at universities and colleges in the state of Florida. We also provide Grants paid directly to the college or university in the student’s behalf to help offset the cost of higher education or vocational training.

More high school graduates and young adults within our congregation are seeking certifications, apprenticeships, or vocational training programs. We are developing our capability to assist candidates with costs and resources to make informed decisions about their career choices. 

Recipients  

The Christ Church Charitable Foundation has supported students pursue their dreams of higher education for over 30 years. Scholarships and grants funded through events and endowments helped them become doctors, entrepreneurs, accountants, pharmacists, lawyers, priests, and technicians among other vocations.  Their stories inspire the Commissions work.
