Since it was established, the Scholarship Committee has been raising funds for deposit in both an Endowment and an Operating Fund. Income from the Endowment is allocated to the Operating Fund. Scholarships are awarded from the Operating Fund and from the Meeting's budget.

Contributions have been received from the Meeting, the Trustees, individual donors, a Carriage Shed Sale, as well as investment income. The committee encourages planned giving by members and attenders.

The committee allows donors to the Scholarship Fund to earmark their donations for either the Endowment and/or the Operating Fund. Donations that are not earmarked for either will go to the endowment fund. These funds are held at Friends Fiduciary Fund in Philadelphia (and transferred to Shore United Bank in Easton as needed.)

The Committee strikes a balance between informality (no standardized application form) on one hand, and obtaining enough pertinent information to evaluate each applicant fairly on the other. The recipients are members, part of our Third Haven Meeting community. Currently, the standard scholarship amount is $600 per academic year for full-time students. Up to $1,200 per year may be awarded to students attending Quaker schools. For the next school year the Committee expects to increase the awards to $800 and $1600. The Committee plans to increase awards as our funds permit.

Third Haven Friends Monthly Meeting is a member of Southern Quarterly Meeting of Philadelphia Yearly Meeting of Friends General Conference of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
