Beverly Junker Youth Music Scholarship: St. Peter’s UCC in Grant Park is committed to encouraging and financially supporting students as they enhance their skills and love of music/fine arts activities.  The Beverly Junker Scholarship may be used to attend a music camp, musical lessons, or toward fees associated with a music related expense (i.e. instrument, etc.). Scholarships up to $150 will be awarded based on availability and submission guidelines, and will be available to students entering grades 4-12. 

Students must be currently studying music in some capacity. Students will complete a scholarship application and submit it to St. Peter’s UCC for consideration.  Students should be a member of St. Peter’s, but not necessary.  Consideration towards St. Peter’s members will be a priority, along with students who attend worship and youth activities.  Students may earn the scholarship a maximum of two times.  To apply, contact [email protected] for a copy of the application form.
