Wyckoff, a long-time member of the Summit Community and of UMC Summit, can be awarded to any high school graduating senior who is a member of the United Methodist Church of Summit and who have demonstrated their commitment to UMC Summit’s mission through their involvement in, and contribution to, their school, church, community, and to the world around them. This can be demonstrated in the form of academic achievement, involvement in church attendance, volunteer efforts, school or church projects that are consistent with UMC Summit’s mission. This scholarship is a non-renewable scholarship.

  2. The Evelyn M.

Financial need can be self-professed, but the UMC Summit Scholarship committee may ask for additional information such as the EFC index from a student’s FAFSA application or other qualifying financial information to confirm financial need.  This scholarship is a non-renewable scholarship.
