This scholarship fund was founded from a donation by John Q. Jordan, Edward (Pinkey) H. Jordan, and Carol Jordan Green in honor of their parents Arletecy Cameron Jordan and Clarence Edward Jordan. Clarence was a birthright Quaker and his wife Arletecy devoted the majority of her free time to Deep River Friends Meeting, especially to the children. This family values education greatly, and are glad to have founded a way to sustainably support their community through education assistance. The family receives notification of every scholarship recipient, and a family member is represented on the committee. Through the years, the fund has gained support from much of the congregation. A few other special families and organizations have also set up funds that contribute to the scholarship monies: Bea Smith, the Gordons, Technical School, and Brigham Camp Fund.
- A person of any age can qualify for a scholarship (traditional and adult students).
- Applicants must have a consistent and direct involvement with Deep River Friends Meeting.
- Priority consideration for monies is given to those planning to teach or obtain a degree in childcare.
Applications must be received by July 15th. Scholarships monies will be disbursed prior to the Fall semester (1st week in August) and Spring semester (1st week in January).
It is encouraged that each recipient of scholarship money send an acknowledgement to Deep River Friends Meeting. Thank you for applying. Good luck in your upcoming semesters, and we wish you the best in all endeavors! We are so glad to have you as part of our DRFM community, and hope this money will help you succeed in your education.
