Our goal is to enhance the educational opportunities for young Presbyterians and build upon Westminster's historic ties to the church. The Young Presbyterian Scholars (YPS) Program empowers congregations to nominate up to two deserving students for a four-year, $70,000 scholarship to one of the nation's best liberal arts colleges.
The Mission of the YPS Program is to:
- Provide opportunities for personal and spiritual growth
- Mentor/partner with other students throughout the Program's course
- Study and discuss faith issues
- Develop and encourage leadership skills
It is the Program's goal to parallel the mission of Westminster College, which is to help men and women develop the competencies, commitments and characteristics which distinguish humanity at its best.
