It’s coming close to the end of the school year, and many high school seniors are looking for scholarship opportunities.  To assist in this effort, the Ministers’ Conference of Winston-Salem and Vicinity (MCWSV) gives out scholarships every year to young men and women of Forsyth County.

The teens eligible for the scholarship must be connected with a church that has contributed to the conference’s scholarship fund.  They must also carry at least a 2.0 grade point average and plan to enroll into a college in the state of North Carolina, along with other qualifications.

Last year, the conference was able to give away over $12,000 in scholarships to local teens.  The plan for this year is to exceed what was given out last year. The conference seems well on its way thus far.

Those interested in applying for the scholarship should visit the Ministers’ Conference website at or contact the conference secretary by email at

“This is a passion that is at the heart of the ministers’ conference,” said Elder Tembila Covington, vice president of the MCWSV.  “We aim to be a voice of the community, serve the community but also to be a helping hand to the community.”

“The eligibility requirements are so we are able to help those individuals who are looking for a future in higher education but need some help monetarily,” she continued.  “It’s a passion of the organization to serve others wherever we can.”

Covington says this is one of the major reasons why she dedicates herself so much toward the conference.  For her, it’s helping out the next generation in its quest for knowledge.

“What better way to serve than to serve the young people that aspire to become successful as adults,” she said.  “It’s really about lending a helping hand to those individuals that would otherwise would not be able to find the funds.”
