Applications are now available for the annual scholarship programs funded with proceeds from the sale of some Presbytery of Lake Michigan properties.

Following a decision during the December 4, 2018 Stated Meeting, the presbytery awards funds to:

  • Help congregations and worshipping communities resource and support community outreach, justice ministries and new worshipping community activities; 
  • Help children and youth access leadership development activities, and
  • Pay registration fees for children and youth to attend Presbyterian-related camps in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana.

Applications for the scholarships are available at on the Documents Page under Scholarships and Grants. The deadline to submit applications for the current year is Monday, April 19, 2021.
