First United Methodist Church of Hope has established an endowed scholarship at the University of Arkansas Community College at Hope. Church leaders meet with College officials earlier this week to present $10,000 to the UACCH Foundation and to complete a gift agreement.

The First United Methodist Church of Hope Endowed Scholarship will provide financial assistance to students pursuing certificates or degrees from UACCH. Recipients will be chosen by the UACCH Scholarship Committee. Scholarship criteria give preference to applicants who are members of First United Methodist Church of Hope and require grade point average of 2.5 or better.

The UACCH Foundation appreciates this investment made by FUMC  in the lives of the its members and others who desire to further their educations at UACCH.  For more information about UACCH and the scholarships offered, visit the college website at
