Please continue to practice common sense measures for social distancing and hygiene during these uncertain times.
Stay safe everyone.

The Meyer Scholarship Fund, administered by North Presbyterian Church, was established to help needy and worthy students further their education. The scholarship may be used at any nationally-accredited post-high school or post-graduate institution. The Scholarship Committee believes that the Meyer Fund allows North Church an opportunity to be unique in the world of academic scholarships. While the typical academic scholarship focuses primarily on scholastic achievement measured by grades, the Meyer Scholarship Fund is designed with the understanding that applicants have spiritual experiences as well. In short, the Meyer Scholarship will recognize the applicant’s Christian experience, their journey of faith. Please call the church office and leave a voice message for an application. Your message will be returned within one business day.
Applications must be snail mailed to the church
and postmarked by July 31.
