Hinckley Fund Scholarship Committee
We’re ready to throw good money after good
Due by March 31!
Every year at this time the Hinckley Fund Scholarship Committee sets out to fulfill Captain Hinckley’s wishes for this scholarship and solicits applications from people attending graduate school with the intent to devote themselves to humanitarian goals. And every year we are honored to be given the opportunity to support students in seminary, medical school, and dental school; students preparing to become social workers, nurses, and teachers. We’ve also supported an international aid worker studying how to ease the refugee crisis, a dietitian focused on maternal and neonatal nutrition in Third World countries, and a family therapist seeking training to help break the cycle of violence when childhood abuse victims become parents. We helped put a protege of Dick Castile through journalism school and now he works for Mother Jones, promising to be a trustworthy voice in a sea of fake news.
Are you or do you know someone heading to graduate school (or already there!) planning to enter one of the helping professions? Do they live in one of the nine Bay Area counties? If so, hand them an application and tell them to get it back to the church by March 31. We want to hear from you!
