THOMAS K. CARTWRIGHT SCHOLARSHIP
 
The Thomas K. Cartwright Scholarship will be granted annually by The Susquehanna Conference of The United Methodist Church. The granting agency is the Enlistment & Interpretation Committee of The Board of Ordained Ministry. The scholarship honors the memory of Rev. Dr. Thomas Kevin Cartwright, who contributed heavily to establishing "The Culture of the Call," encouraging men and women and young people to listen to the call of God to them in the former Central Pennsylvania Conference.

This scholarship has been established to support young adults as they respond to the call to ordained ministry. The recipient will be announced during the awards presentations of The Susquehanna Annual Conference. Qualities of the recipient will include demonstrated leadership in the church and the community, academic excellence, and a clearly articulated sense of call to ordained ministry in The United Methodist Church.

Additionally, applicants must be certified candidates for ministry in The Susquehanna Conference of The United Methodist Church who are currently enrolled or accepted into college or seminary and under the age of 35 years as of December 31 of that same year.

Applications are available HERE and are due by March 15.

Submit typed applications (no handwritten application please) and send electronically in a pdf file directly to Pastor Adam Miller at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
