The Nominating Committee’s primary function is to prepare a slate of members who are qualified for and willing to serve on the Session, Board of Deacons, Nominating Committee and Finance and Endowment Committee. The slate is presented for a vote at a congregational meeting for usually held in November.
The Nominating Committee also serves as the Scholarship Committee.
UPC is blessed to have funds provided by members and specifically designated for scholarships. Currently the Scholarship Fund receives money from funds donated by Harriet R. Darmody, Kenneth L. White, Ethelyn I. Hewitt, the UPC Scholarship Fund and other donations.
The purpose of the scholarships is to offer the encouragement and support of our congregation for those continuing their education. The amount may vary from year to year depending on total funds available, number of applicants, and specific needs of applicants. Scholarships are normally awarded annually, and traditionally the award amounts for undergraduate education are larger than those for graduate studies.
The application deadline will normally be 12:00 Noon on the first Friday in June. Review of applications and awards to be made will be completed by the end of June and applicants notified of the committee’s decision. Award checks are mailed in early August.
