Aid Opportunity for Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) student 

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is seeking applicants for the Beall Scholarship. The gift from the estate of Annie Elizabeth Beall is restricted to the education of Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) members who are female, under 35 years of age or younger, and residents of one of the following states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee, South Carolina, or Virginia.  The gift is further restricted to study in fine arts or performing arts.

The gift is down to the last $30,000, and we hope to find a student meeting the donor’s restriction pursuing a graduate theological education in music. For the past year, we’ve worked with the Presbyterian Association of Musicians without producing an applicant.
