2017 College Scholarship Information
College Scholarship Origination
The Shiloh Baptist Church College Scholarship was established to help its members, who are graduating high school seniors, continue their education by attending a four- or two-year institution of higher learning, or vocational, technical, or trade school. Over the past years, these scholarships have provided financial assistance to students pursuing careers at accredited schools nationwide.
