The Scholarship Ministry was established in The Co-op City Baptist Church in 1985. Its mission is to assist the youth of our congregation in furthering their education by earning a degree at an accredited college or university of their choice, as a matriculating student. The ministry grants a scholarship, to qualifying students, payable over a period of no more than four years. While there are specific requirements each student must meet, the monies may be applied as the student wishes. Also students, who are members of the church, may be given a gift by the ministry at any level of scholastic achievement. Funds are raised by special events planned specifically for this purpose.
