The Ralph A. Taylor Scholarship




In 2012, Ralph A. Taylor, a former member, of the Bethany Presbyterian Church in Bethany, Pennsylvania, bequeathed to the congregation a large gift of money.  To hone Mr. Taylor, the congregation determined that a portion of this gift would be given as a scholarship to a deserving young person(s) in the community to support their pursuit of a higher education.


The scholarship is open to a Wayne County, Pennsylvania resident or a relative of a member of Bethany Presbyterian Church, who actively attends church activities regardless of denomination.  The monies can be sued for any accredited 2 year school, 4 year undergraduate school or a trade school.  The potential applicant must prove acceptance tot he school of their choice.  It is also open to students who are already enrolled in an accredited school, however, they must prove that they have maintained a 2.5 GPA or higher.


An applicant or applicants will be chosen by a task force designated by the Bethany Presbyterian Church Finance committee.  The task force will choose an applicant(s) each year and decise on the amount of monies they will receive.  Depending on the number of applicants and the quality of their application, the task force will determine the number of scholarships each year.  There is no guarantee there will be a scholarship awarded each year.  The applicant does not have to have an association with the Bethany Presbyterian Church in order to be awarded the scholarship.
