Applications for the Mabel Anderson Scholarship need to be turned into the church office by 3pm on Monday, April 15, 2019. High school graduates who are members of First are eligible to apply for the scholarship, which is meant to help with post-secondary education costs.
Recipients are notified in the spring; they receive the money after their first semester of post-secondary education if they meet GPA requirements. Usually, more than one recipient is chosen. The amount of the scholarship may vary from year to year; 2018 recipients received $300 each.
Links are provided below to the scholarship directions and the form that needs to be turned in with the essay. A paper copy of the directions and the form can be picked up in the office as well. For more information contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 608.783.2236.
The Mabel Anderson Scholarship was established from a generous bequest received from the estate of Mabel Anderson between 1989 and 1991. Miss Anderson was a lifelong member of First Lutheran Church before her death on December 2, 1989, at the age of 90.
