Through generous donations, The Idlewild Foundation funds undergraduate scholarships to active Idlewild members who show a financial need. Since 2012 we have given more than 360 scholarships totaling over $900,000. Scholarship applications for the Fall semester of 2018 will be available in early February, 2018 and will be due by April 30. When available, please download an application. The application has a great deal of information about the requirements of this scholarship program.
This scholarship program when a loving couple wanted to donate funds to start education for those who might not otherwise be able to attend college. They made this donation anonymously because they want God to get all of the glory. Since then, additional donations have been made and allow the scholarship program to continue.
The Idlewild Foundation remains excited to announce the receipt of a grant for $100,000 from the In God We Trust Foundation to fund scholarships for five members of Idlewild Baptist Church who fit the program requirements. This allows The Idlewild Foundation to further expand its scholarship program to the glory of God. The God We Trust Foundation is behind the In God We Trust specialty license plates issued by the State of Florida and has a mission that compliments that of The Idlewild Foundation. Charitable revenue received through sales of the ‘In God We Trust’ specialty license plate goes to fund education for children of Florida residents in the military community, children of Florida residents in the public safety community, and to provide education in public or private schools regarding the historical significance of religion in American and Florida history.
