The Green Acres Baptist Church Proverbs 3:6 Scholarship is a new scholarship, created in 2018 at the request, and through the gift of a thoughtful donor.

Proverbs 3:6 Scholarships may be awarded in an amount up to $500 per semester per student, depending on the number of applications received and the amount of scholarship funds available. The Proverbs 3:6 Scholarship is funded entirely by voluntary contributions. Additional donations to the scholarship fund are certainly welcome, but donations may not be designated for the use of any specific individual or family.
