SCHOLARSHIP FUND QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS
All candidates for scholarship and/or student aid grants shall be in good standing of the Otterbein Church of Waynesboro, Pennsylvania with at least 75% recorded attendance for two continuous years immediately preceding the application. Students must have a high school diploma or a GED certificate to apply. Should the applicant already be an enrolled college student, regular attendance is required while residing at home. Students who are working away from home during the summer months and cannot attend their home church can still qualify for a scholarship grant if they submit written proof from the church they are attending, showing they have met the attendance guidelines.
Students of full-time missionaries who consider Otterbein their church home and want to attend college in the United States will qualify for a scholarship, if they meet all the necessary requirements. The time spent on the mission field will fulfill the requirement for church attendance.
Scholarships and/or grants shall be limited to those in undergraduate programs, schools of Christian ministries, or Master of Divinity. It is not the intent that students seeking advanced degrees in other disciplines receive assistance from the fund.
All monies disbursed by the fund shall be considered as outright grants to support the recipient and not as loans.
All individuals who receive support from the fund shall maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or above to be eligible for additional support in successive periods.
All applicants will be required to submit a detailed application to the Scholarship Committee no less than 90 days prior to the beginning of the semester for which the scholarship support is being requested. A new application must be completed each year.
The scholarship grant will be paid directly to the college.
Payments will be made on a yearly basis prior to August 1.
High School Students need to supply OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS.
Application and cumulative school records must be submitted to the church by 4 p.m. June 15.
