The 2020 Guatemala Scholarship Fund
About the 2020 Guatemala Scholarship Fund
Roswell Presbyterian Church members and friends sponsor Christian Education Scholarships for children in three Guatemalan schools
Beginning in 2000, RPC mission teams to Guatemala recognized the need for a scholarship program to help with the costs of providing a Christian education for young Guatemalan students in the District of Quiché. These annual scholarships, funded by “sponsors” who are RPC members or friends, provide tuition for one full school year, books and materials needed during the year, and a chance for a bright future.
Thanks to the generosity of many, the RPC Guatemala scholarship program has grown over the years from serving one student in 2001 to 169 students in 2019. It is our prayer that you will join us in this effort of communities in Guatemala!
Scholarship Support provides one year of Christian education tuition and opportunity for a better future!
$275 for a commuting student
$525 for a boarding student
Sponsorships can be paid online or by completing the attached commitment card and placing it with a check to RPC noting “2020 Guatemala Scholarship Fund” in the offering plate, in the mail, or bring it to the Church Office by December 31, 2019.
2020 Guatemala Scholarship Fund Commitment Form
Christ-centered outreach is rooted in the understanding that we are all broken, the materially and non-materially poor, and in need of being restored to relationship with God. From this mission perspective, we come alongside of at-risk people to affirm the gifts God has given and help empower them for what God has lovingly designed them to be. We are more about people than programs, development instead of dependence, and respectfully upholding the diversity of all people.
We follow Christ's call primarily through a mission focus on education because we believe empowering others through development and long-term relationships is vital to eradicating poverty. Still, we strive to be engaged with meeting housing and emergency relief needs.
