“The Kingdom Fellowship AME scholarship has allowed me to pursue my passion in Business and Cinematic Arts with less stress of how I will pay for college. It is very impactful to know that I have a church behind me that wants me to succeed in pursuing higher education. This scholarship has motivated me to push through the struggles of a virtual first-year and be optimistic of my future!”
“It was an honor to be recognized as a Kingdom Fellowship Scholar for the 2020-2021 school year. Receiving the scholarship aided my first year of college tremendously and I will truly never be able to express my gratitude. Because of Kingdom Fellowship and my amazing church family, I have ample support to be covered in my college journey.”
“Receiving the scholarship from Kingdom Fellowship AME was truly a blessing. This scholarship has been very beneficial to me in my studies at George Mason University and it has been a reliable foundation for resources that are helpful for my education. My $5000.00 scholarship enabled me to purchase the tools essential to pursue my undergraduate degree in communications. I was able to purchase all of the necessary supplies such as a computer, books, and journals. In addition, this scholarship has been another reminder of how great God is and has enhanced my motivation to excel as I was recently inducted into the Lambda Sigma Honor Society. I am encouraged to continue to serve my church and community and to do His will!”
“I have been a member of Kingdom Fellowship my whole life. When it was time for me to go off to college, I applied for all types of scholarships. Receiving the scholarship from Kingdom Fellowship was a blessing. It left me joyous to know that my church family wanted to invest in my education to help further my success. With the scholarship I was able to obtain a Bachelor’s in Science in Sport Management from Hampton University.”
“While winning the KFAME scholarship certainly allowed me to better support myself financially during my first year of school, the award represents a lot more than just a check. It provides assurance and offers a constant reminder that I do not face the unique adversities and stressful climate of Harvard alone. I know that there is a community constantly praying and looking out for me.”
“Around this time last year, I was a high school graduate of Laurel High School and now I attend Prince George's Community College. The Kingdom Fellowship Scholarship Program helped me tremendously through my first year of college because it met the expense of my books, classes, and other things for me to expound on my educational journey. This program is the best scholarship program for any young adult looking forward to succeed in their career goal. I am thankful and grateful for Pastor Matthew Watley and my Kingdom Fellowship Family for your continued commitment and contributions to see me succeed.”
