26th Annual NewVision FM Abby Snyder Memorial College Scholarship

The Application is Now Available

The Abby Snyder Memorial ScholarshipAwards ($1,500.00; $1,000.00; $750.00; and $500.00 scholarships) are available to any Christian student applying for and entering into the first year of college. There is a list of criteria that the student must meet, including residence in the twenty-three county area to which NewVision FM broadcasts, letters of reference from the student’s pastor, church council, and other requirements.

Students who wish to apply for the NewVision FM Scholarship must have their church or school request the latest 2023 revised copy of the guidelines and application form and enclose a S.A.S.E. Copies of the application will not be given to individual students. It is expected that churches or schools would make copies of the application for their own respective students. The application must be received at the NewVision FM studios on or before the 5:00 PM deadline on March 31, 2023, prior to the student’s freshman year of college.

The decision on the scholarship recipients will be made by the end of April by two qualified educators who will judge the applications. Requests from churches or schools for the application and guidelines should be made by contacting Jon Bowlus at 419-294-2900 ext. 302 or by email; jbowlus@newvision.fm.

“I don’t know when I’ll go to meet my Savior,
I don’t know the time
or where I will be
when it’s my time to go. Someday this old body will rest, But I’m not afraid of death. Because I know I’m going to the place that my Father’s been preparing for me.”

– Abby Snyder

Abby’s Motto

“When you come to the edge of all light you have known, And are about to step off into darkness,
Faith is knowing
there’ll be something to stand on, Or you will be taught how to fly.”

Abby Snyder, the daughter of Terry and Regina Snyder, was tragically killed June 7, 2000 at the age of 19. Her young life touched many people near and far. The officers and members of the Board of Directors thought there couldn’t be a better way to remember her than by establishing this scholarship in her memory.
