Jane Loring Jones Scholarship
Tell me more about the scholarship fund (2023-2024):
The Jane Loring Jones Scholarship Fund was founded Sept. 28, 1953, by the women of the Amoma Sunday School Class of Broadway Baptist Church, Denver, Colorado, and by her son, Norwood Loring Jones and his family. Jane Loring Jones served the Broadway Baptist Church faithfully for 32 years as a teacher and counselor. The Scholarship perpetuates her lifelong interest in helping consecrated Christian young women further their education in preparation for their life as Christian leaders in the home, church and community.
The American Baptist Women of Colorado (ABWM) adopted the Jane Loring Jones Scholarship Fund in 1954 as a state project. The principal of the Fund is placed in sound investments and the income used exclusively for scholarships each year.
Who can apply for this scholarship:
Any young woman may apply provided that:
She is an active member of a cooperating church of the American Baptist Churches of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah.
She has a high school diploma with a scholastic record indicating her capability for higher education.
She is under 26 years of age as of July 1 of the granting year.
Christian character, personality and dependability.
She will be a full time undergraduate at an accredited university, college or community college. Preference will be given to American Baptist related colleges and universities.
To receive a scholarship, she does not have to be entering Christian service as a vocation, but she must have a real desire to prepare herself for Christian leadership in the home, church and community.
Scholarships will be awarded for the academic year based upon the above qualifications as well as a personal statement, recent academic transcript, and financial need. The amount awarded will be applied to the student’s account and sent each semester/quarter directly to the recipient’s chosen institution.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything (James 1:2-4, NIV).
