The Advancing the Flame Matching Scholarship is an award to encourage United Methodist youth to receive an outstanding education at Florida Southern College. Florida Southern College will match dollar for dollar, up to a maximum of $1,000, a gift given for a student by their home church. Funds must come directly from the church, scholarship committee, or groups or individuals within the congregation. (Funds received from family or relatives designated for the scholarship recipient may not be claimed as a charitable contribution deduction per IRS regulations.)
