Pine Hill Baptist Church Scholarship

Administered by: The First Baptist Church of East Aurora | 591 Porterville Road, East Aurora, New York 14052 | (716) 652-2145

  • BACKGROUND: This scholarship was established in 1998, because of a donation from the Pine Hill Baptist Church, Cheektowaga, New York. It was the wish of the congregation of that church that a portion of the proceeds from the sale of their church property is used to continue the ministry of the Pine Hill Baptist Church by providing financial gifts to area students.
  • OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this gift is to provide funds to a college student to help meet expenses associated with higher education.
  • Students will be selected based on their commitment to the church and the community rather than academic accomplishments. Young people who demonstrate a strong faith and sense of community should be recognized.
  • A single award will be made each school year. The minimum amount of this gift has been set at $1000.00. Payment to the recipient will be made with two draws each academic year prior to the start of the fall semester and winter/spring semester.
  • QUALIFICATIONS: The recipient must be a resident of New York State and a church member (membership to The First Baptist Church of East Aurora is not required) who has demonstrated his or her active involvement with their church and community. Applicants must be planning to attend a 2-year or 4-year accredited college as a full-time student and maintain a passing average.
