Giving the Religious Leaders of Tomorrow a Helping Hand Today
As part of our mission, Protecting the Greater Good, Church Mutual Insurance Company, S.I. ® believes supporting today's vibrant and dedicated religious scholars will ensure strong faith-based communities tomorrow. CM CARES®, the Church Mutual Insurance Company Foundation, is pleased to support the future of religious communities like yours through a scholarship program.
2020 applications are now closed. Winners have been selected and will be announced once they have accepted the award.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the heightened need to provide financial assistance to support programs nationwide, CM CARES has made the decision to modify its 2020 CM CARES Religious Scholars Program.
We are happy to report we will honor our commitment by continuing to award scholarship funds to 50 students nationwide. However, recipients who are selected will receive $2,500 each this fall, rather than $5,000 as previously announced. Winners have been selected and will be announced once they have accepted the award. Award funds will be distributed to the students in August 2020.
The award amount modification of $2,500, rather than the original $5,000, allows CM CARES to support two great needs: 1) future religious leaders; 2) communities and organizations that are serving those in need through the recently established CM CARES COVID-19 Protecting the Greater Good Recovery Fund (Fund). To help as many people as we can, we have shifted funds originally earmarked for the Religious Scholars Program to the Fund. The Fund will help nonprofit organizations meet the increase in demand for essential services.
