OUR ANNUAL $1000 SOCIAL JUSTICE SCHOLARSHIP
The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County (UUFDC) is pleased to have the tradition of an annual $1000 scholarship to be awarded to one Door County graduating senior who demonstrates an outstanding personal commitment to social justice. This scholarship opportunity is open to all Door County graduating high school or homeschool seniors.
A commitment to social justice is one of the founding principles of Unitarian Universalism and “Justice is at the core of our faith. Our congregations are called to make a positive difference in our wider communities. We work to serve, to raise awareness, and to support and partner with people who face injustice. We advocate, organize, and act for justice to live out the values of our faith” (www.uua.org/justice-programs).
Through the scholarship, students of any faith – or no faith – are encouraged to persevere in the struggle for social justice, wherever and whenever they find it. Students need NOT be members of the UUFDC to apply.
Award money is to be paid directly to the student’s college at the beginning of their second semester of study.
