The General Assembly Planning Committee is thrilled to announce that the amount designated for Financial Need and Scholarships has been doubled for the 50th Anniversary General Assembly in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The Planning Committee’s matching-fund scholarship program was created to increase economic accessibility for folks who want to attend General Assembly and to encourage congregations to send delegates to our annual meeting of congregations.
The selection criteria for scholarships are as follows:
- applicants must be a minister or member of a UU congregation
- applicants must have a demonstrable financial need
- new or first time scholarship applicants will receive priority consideration
- applicants who will participate in programming related to anti-racist, anti-oppressive and multicultural growth and leadership will receive priority consideration
- applicants in positions of leadership in their congregations (lay and professional) will receive priority consideration
- those serving as delegates from their congregation – especially those from new congregations or congregations that have not recently sent representation to GA
Applications forms will be available on March 1 and are due on March 31. Click here for further information.
The Planning Committee hopes to see you at the historical and grand 50th Anniversary GA!
