Daughenbaugh Matheny and Hutchinson Scholarships

June 13, 2018

In 1950, the Howard L. Daughenbaugh Memorial Scholarship was established by the Board of Laity of the Louisiana Conference of The United Methodist Church to aid young people enrolled full time at Centenary College in the pursuit of careers in Christian education and service. 
 

In 1982, the Thomas H. Matheny Scholarship increased educational opportunities for United Methodists in the conference. Both funds were named to honor outstanding Conference Lay Leaders.  In 1987, these two funds were combined to help prepare tomorrow’s United Methodist Church leaders seeking to attend Centenary College or Dillard University.

All applicants for the Daughenbaugh-Matheny Scholarships must be residents of Louisiana, current members of a Louisiana United Methodist Church and attending or planning to attend one of Louisiana’s two Methodist institutions of higher learning, Centenary College or Dillard University. Candidacy for the award is open to high school seniors and college students who have at least a 2.5-grade point average.


Scholarships are awarded yearly (school year) for a maximum of four years based upon scholarship, service, and need. A personal interview is required as part of the application process for the first two years of the award. After that, previous recipients need only fill out an application form accompanied by a letter of reference from a teacher and their pastor.
