Rev. Nan Geertz Memorial Scholarship Award :

The Reverend Nanette Geertz Memorial Scholarship Award was named in memory of our beloved Associate Minister, who served our Church from 2000 until her untimely death in 2005.  Reverend Nan was born in East Derry, NH, the daughter of a minister and the wife of a retired UCC Minister.  She was the mother of two children.  Nan authored "Journeys," a book of poetry which reflects her struggles with the death of her daughter and her own breast cancer.  Reverend Nan passed away after a long battle with cancer, but her spirit lives on in our church.

Sponsored by the Women’s Union, this scholarship is awarded to graduating senior high school students, planning to further their education at a higher learning institution, who have completed Confirmation and have met additional service requirements.  In order to be considered for the scholarship, students must:
  • Be a member of the First Congregational Church of Falmouth
  • Compose a brief essay
  • Participate in an interview 
  • Complete a minimum of 80 hours of service to the First Congregational Church of Falmouth
