The Reverend Paul F. Holmes Memorial Scholarship Fund

"Rev. Paul Holmes realized summer camps for youth were so important because so many youth made their first decision to follow Christ in the setting of a camp and so he made sure camps were a priority in local churches and the conference plus he gave himself wholeheartedly as a camp counselor."
Rev. Rick Thornton, Wichita Aldersgate United Methodist Church

The Reverend Paul F. Holmes Memorial Scholarship Fund was established with the Kansas Area United Methodist Foundation to provide continuing education scholarships for clergy members of the former Kansas West Conference of the United Methodist Church for the purpose of enabling intensive study of longer than usual duration, such as sabbatical leaves and major educational experiences.

The Reverend Paul F. Holmes Memorial Scholarship Fund has been amended so that clergy members of the Great Plains Conference of the United Methodist Church may qualify.

Scholarships up to $10,000.00 may be awarded to an approved applicant, subject to availability of funds.
