2017 marked the 30th presentation of the Andrew D.M. Cutts Memorial Scholarship at Queensbury United Methodist Church. Andrew was a popular Clarkson College student who is remembered for his high level of involvement in the life of QUMC, Queensbury High School and his community.
Since the inception of this fund, a total of 77 students have received awards to help further their education beyond high school. Those wishing to enter military service are also invited to apply.
Applicants must be members of QUMC and demonstrate consistent commitment to church, school and community service. We strongly suggest that students keep track of their activities and the amount of time they devote as this information becomes essential when the committee votes on awards.
Money for the Andrew Cutts Scholarships is earned through two fundraisers – a Christmas wreath sale during our Holiday Festival in December and the purchase of scrolls in the spring that honors or remembers loved ones. Of course, donations to the fund are appreciated and welcome at any time!
Applications for the Andrew Cutts Scholarship are available each April from the church office and awards are presented at a special ceremony during a 10:30am worship service in June.
