The Idlewild Foundation is now accepting scholarship applications for the fall semester of 2021 and the spring of 2022 for eligible students. Click here for the form. Our program continues into its ninth year. How did the grace of God make this amazing program possible?
The Scholarship Program
Our scholarship program began with the generous donation of an anonymous couple. These humble people wanted all of the glory and all of the thanks to go to God who made this possible. See Deuteronomy 8:18. They, and now others, have added to our scholarship fund. This has allowed many new students to add to their learning and step into a better career and life, a true blessing from God. We have also been fortunate to receive a grant from the In God We Trust Foundation. With this we are expanding our scholarship program to Idlewild members who are the children of U.S. armed services members or public safety employees.
The Idlewild Foundation is for active Idlewild members attending Title IV schools who show a financial need. Over the past seven years we have given out over 430 scholarships totaling over $1,100,000. This has allowed students to begin and complete an education they otherwise might not have been able to afford. They now know the Biblical truth of Psalm 121:1-2, “Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord!”
Our donors understand the Gospel and the words of the Apostle Paul:
2 Corinthians 9:11-13
11 You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.
12 This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.
13 Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else.
