First Church Scholarships

The First Congregational Church of Harwich makes available several scholarships from our General Scholarship Fund to local high school students (General Fund), and to ministry and Christian Education students (Woods Fund) as funding allows.

High school graduates who are residents of Harwich are eligible to apply for the General Scholarship or Continuing Education Scholarship if you have received one of our scholarships in the past. Members of the First Congregational Church of Harwich and their extended families are also eligible to apply.

Ministry and Christian Education students who are Harwich residents, First Church members or their extended families or members of congregations within the Southern New England Conference of the UCC are invited to apply for a scholarship through the Woods Fund.

Scholarships are awarded to assist with the cost of attending college, including community college and trade schools, and seminary.

Please note: the application period for 2022-2023 has now closed.
