The Mid-Columbia Fellowship of Churches sponsors a unique scholarship, The Marvin D. Jones Memorial Scholarship, to be awarded to a graduating senior, an adult addict in recovery or a teen with addicted parents.

A minimum of six months of documented non-use or sobriety is required of applicants in treatment for their addiction. Applicants must be accepted by or enrolled in a post-graduate educational institution.

A minimum of six months of documented sobriety for adults in recovery is required. Documented attendance in Al-a-Non is required of Al-a-Non

applicants. The order of protocol:

  • A post-graduate in recovery, already attending a college or trade school.

  • A young person in Al-a-Teen coping with addicted parent/parents; if addicted themselves, they must have a minimum of six months sobriety.

Applicants must be in good standing in their current

educational institution or have been accepted by an educational institution. The grant money will go to the institution attended by the grant recipient.
