The SoMA has funds available for Presbyterians to use for higher education. These scholarships can be used for any accredited institution of higher learning (including trade schools and graduate study programs).  Scholarships are available/awarded per school year and renewable with application annually.

Scholarships are open to active Presbyterians with the Synod of Mid-America, and whose church membership qualifies as one of the 100 smallest churches in Kansas (Total of 75 members or less)  & Missouri (Total of 50 members or less) as determined by membership reported December 31, 2015.  Applicants will be judged on financial need, academic achievement, and involvement in the local church, school, and community. All scholarship applicants must be endorsed by their session, and obtain a letter of support from the Clerk of Session or Pastor.   

Deadline for applications for educational scholarships has been extended to July 1, 2017.
