Bob Turner was a member of Faith Presbyterian Church and later Light Street Presbyterian Church. For 10 years he was also the Treasurer of Baltimore Presbytery. He and his wife Penny developed a special interest in helping young people benefit from witnessing the church at work in other cultures. In April, 1992 Bob Turner died from stomach cancer; he was 37. Penny Ward established this Scholarship Fund as a memorial to his love for the church.

The Robert J. Turner Memorial Scholarship Fund is established to enable young members of churches in Baltimore Presbytery to participate in foreign or domestic mission projects sponsored by the Presbytery. Typically, these projects are organized by the Youth Committee and/or Global Mission Committee and are designed to encourage and expand understanding of the diverse nature of Christ’s church. Project activities frequently include “hands-on” work as well as cultural education experiences.

Scholarships will be awarded annually, the number of them and amount of each to be calculated according to the amount of projected income to be accrued from the Scholarship Fund for that year and according to the cost per participant for each mission project. (Ordinary income will be used to fund the Scholarship while capital gains will be reinvested.) The Presbytery’s Accountant and the Scholarship Committee will make these determinations and will announce Scholarship availability as early each calendar year as possible.

It will be assumed that Scholarship applicants first meet all requirements of the mission project in question (age, parental permission, etc.); if they do not, their applications for this Scholarship will be disqualified.

The Scholarship Committee (composed of the Associate for Spiritual Leader Development, members from the Commission on Spiritual Leader Development and members from the Commission on Reconciliation) will read the essays and select Scholarship recipients.
