2016 SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
The San Francisco Chapter is continuing a program of supporting local students as they strive to secure their future through a college education. Each year, many local sponsors donate to the BYUMS Scholarship Fund, which is apportioned to local LDS students to attend the school of their choice.
We just concluded this year’s effort and the results were amazing! A special thank you to our many sponsors! Also, thank you to all of you who support the chapter by attending events and paying dues – several scholarships are given out from the chapter surplus from our ongoing events and membership fees.
We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting scholarship applications! The application process includes two essays about how the student has been a moral leader already and how he or she hopes to be an ethical influencer throughout his or her career. The deadline is April 5, 2015.
