The Jennifer Munyard Scholarship


About the scholarship

The Jennifer Munyard Scholarship provides girls and boys who have experienced significant trauma the opportunity to be educated in a safe learning environment at Maranatha Christian School.
Jennifer Munyard was a highly regarded Secondary School Teacher and a Pastoral Care Leader at Maranatha from 2009 to 2017.  She was deeply loved and respected by her students, peers and the community. Sadly has passed and is no longer with us. She is remembered as a selfless woman who had an incredible heart for others especially vulnerable children. The contribution she made as an educator and the future educational opportunities that will flourish through this Scholarship will enable her legacy to live on.  

Criteria for awarding scholarship

The purpose of the Jennifer Munyard Scholarship is to provide financial support to students who have experienced significant trauma, and who would not otherwise be able to afford a Christian education. The selection panel will assess the potential an education at Maranatha will make a difference in the life of such a child.
