REGINALD D. WEARY MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP (RDW) FUND

REAL Christian Foundation established the RDW Fund after REAL Co-Founders Dolphus and Rosie Weary’s son’s untimely death in 2004. As a part of their healing process, they prayerfully considered ways to bless other youth from rural Mississippi. The interest from this fund is used to provide partial scholarships to students in rural Mississippi who are connected to community-based Christian ministries REAL supports. Students can use these scholarships to cover costs associated with attending boarding high schools, colleges or universities, technical schools, and graduate seminaries. The scholarships usually range from $1,000 – $2,000 per student. The RDW Fund was designed to help rural Christian ministries develop leaders. The hope is these leaders would have a heart to come back, give back, or serve back in their communities. As of today, REAL has provided over 50 scholarships to students associated with the rural, community-based Christian ministries supported by REAL.
