Tiede Scholarship

The Franklin Tiede Memorial Endowment Scholarship is available to young people between the ages 18 and 25 who want to pursue academic or vocational training focused on missions. 

Charles and Julie Tiede established the Franklin Tiede Memorial Endowment Scholarship to remember their son who served as a missionary and lost his life on the mission field. The scholarship is available for training at an “educational institution” but may be either academic or vocational in nature.  Applicants must have as their goal the propagation of the Christian faith as set forth in the Bible, particularly in the Gospel of Matthew, which instructs Jesus’ followers to “make disciples of all nations” (Matt. 28:19).

“The Tiede family provides a unique opportunity through this endowment,” says Julie Garber, Program Director of the Community Foundation. “Most of our scholarship endowments award grants for traditional college and graduate degrees. This opportunity is available not only to traditional students in college or graduate school, but also to Christian disciples who seek high quality vocational training in the field, including for all aspects of mission work—ministry, teaching, medical service, even flight training for missions.”


Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Click here to view the application.
