Mercy Seat Ministries administers scholarship funds for single parents who are pursuing a degree in an institution of higher learning (vocational/trade school, college, university). Scholarships will be awarded primarily on the basis of a submitted essay, community service, financial need, and grade point average (GPA), if current high school graduate or presently attending college.

  • Evidence of community service

Two scholarships in the amount of 0 are available to two single parents. The Awards banquet will be announced at a later date.

The scholarship check will be made out to the attention of the college or school of the recipient’s choice, after a copy of an official acceptance letter has been submitted to Mercy Seat Ministries.
