Policies and Guidelines

The deadline for this scholarship application, as well as the transcript and reference letters is; for spring semester scholarships: October 1 (you will be notified by November 15); and for fall semester scholarships: June 1 (you will be notified by July 15).

EFC-MAYM is pleased to offer scholarships to missions students at this time. The Scholarship fund first began for Spring 2005 semester and is supervised and granted by the EFC-MAYM Missions Board. The Board’s desire is to give affirmation and support to Friends students who are responding to a “call” to missions, and who intend to serve in the context of the Friends Church.

The amounts of scholarship rewards is dictated by the amount of funds in the Missions Scholarship Fund – so if you are, or know of, a willing donor who wishes to support these students and Friends Missions development, funds can be sent to EFC-MAYM, 2018 Maple, Wichita, KS 67213 (designated “Missions Scholarships”). If you would like to learn more about our scholarships, missions, or students, please contact EFC-MAYM at 316-267-0391.
