South Highland has two scholarship funds - the F.A. Mathes Scholarship Fund and the Helen Mohns Dunaway Seminary Scholarship Fund. The Scholarship Committee reviews applications and makes recommendations to the Administration Unit in March. The recommendations are passed to the Session where grants are approved at the April meeting. Applicants are notified of their scholarship status in May. Scholarship disbursements are made directly to the educational institutions in two installments, late July and early December.

For those who may be thinking of applying for a scholarship from either the F.A. Mathes Scholarship Fund or the Helen Mohns Dunaway Seminary Scholarship Fund, the time to prepare applications has arrived. The deadline for submitting complete applications is February 17, 2017.

For the 2016-2017 academic year, 20 recipients were awarded a total of $32,000 in scholarship grants from the F.A. Mathes Scholarship Fund. Scholarship grants from the Helen Mohns Dunaway Seminary Scholarship Fund totaled $3,000 for one recipient. It is a blessing to be able to offer support to our college and seminary bound students through contributions of gifts to both funds. All South Highland members are encouraged to participate.
