Special to the citizen

On January 28, 2016, Lake Oconee Presbyterian Church (LOPC) formed a scholarship committee to develop guidelines for application and selection criteria for their new annual scholarship program. Initial funding has been provided by a generous donor from within the church family. The scholarships awarded will vary but will not exceed $1,000. Applications will be posted on the LOPC church website and are open to any high school senior from Greene, Morgan, or Putnam counties who completes the application package. A letter of intent must be included with the application outlining career objective, education/training plans, need for funding and how it will be used.

The committee will then review all applications utilizing a blind rating system, and select finalists for a follow-up interview. Each year up to four candidates could be awarded a $250 scholarship, or the committee may decide to offer two $500 scholarships, or one outstanding applicant a $1,000 scholarship.

The application package will be available at area high schools, on the church’s website at, or at the church office located at 113 Scott Road, Eatonton, Georgia 31024. The application packet should be returned to the LOPC office or emailed to by December 1, 2016, to be awarded in 2017.
