Scholarship fund resources are available and considered annually for distribution to undergraduate students within the Rio Texas conference. They are the Craven-Wilson Scholarship, specifically awarded to students attending Texas Wesleyan University, (Ft. Worth, Texas) and The Albert & Nancy Wilson Scholarship for students in other colleges or universities in Texas. Both scholarships are to benefit the Rio Texas Conference. Because of the limited number of scholarships available, the process is highly competitive. Completed packets are due no later than April 1, 2020.
Each year a few students are selected and awarded the Albert and Nancy Wilson Scholarship and the Craven Wilson Scholarship. The scholarship awards given are based on the yearly amount of funds available and the number of students selected. These scholarships have been available for several years through an endowment that was established by the Wilson family for college students who are members of United Methodist churches within the Rio Texas Conference bounds.
