In 2013, MCCS was able to fulfill one of our longtime goals. The trustees decided that it was time to step out in faith and provide college scholarships to deserving young people involved in the scouting movement who had been active in earning MCCS’s Servant Leadership Awards. The trustees allocated the proceeds from the MCCS endowment for that year to set up a new scholarship fund. In 2014, MCCS established a separate endowment to help us in this new endeavor to continue to serve youth. The board feels that this is one more way that MCCS can serve young people and encourage them to earn the Giving Servant Award.
To date MCCS has awarded $20,000 in scholarships to 19 deserving young people. All of these young people earned the top award in their branch of scouting and they all earned either the Good Servant or the Giving Servant awards from the MCCS Servant Leadership Series.
MCCS is proud to announce that in 2017 it will again be offering scholarships to entering freshmen. Download the 2017 MCCS Scholarship Application here. Applications for the 2017 MCCS scholarship are due by March 31, 2017.
The MCCS Board of Trustees is thankful that it has the opportunity to serve young people in their educational pursuits and hopes and prays that it will continue to be able to provide young people with scholarships that will enhance their futures. If you would like to contribute to the scholarship endowment please contact MCCS Executive Director Kent Barnett.
