ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP FUND & RAY MACAUSLAN
The Ray MacAuslan Memorial Scholarship Fund is an FCP program that proudly offers registration scholarships to members who may not otherwise be able to attend our National Conference.
Selection is based on a completed application demonstrating involvement in puppet, creative or a related ministry, recommendations and financial need.
Meet Past Recipients
“Thanks God! It was an amazing time! I’ve learned a lot, in so many ways that it’s very difficult to me to choose one in special. My family was so excited with the opportunity to meet these beautiful people from this amazing Fellowship. We thank God for this heavenly gift!!!”
"I had an amazing experience as a first-timer. You see the passion in the instructors, the attendees, and their creations! You’ll be laughing, singing, dancing, crying, and rejoicing with a whole community."
"FCP became an instrument for me to learn and be equipped more and to remove me from my comfort zone and expose the child in me. I'm so grateful to all at FCP who made this possible for me."
"I was over-the-moon excited about attending this year’s conference. My head is full of the knowledge that I learned from the classes that I took; my notebook is full of the ideas and changes that I want and need to implement in my business and ministry; and my heart is full of the friendships that I made."
"Before the conference I was beginning to question myself as to whether or not I should stay in creative ministry... However the conference gave me a fresh and encouraging outlook and now I’m more than excited to continue."
"The love of puppetry, the excitement and learning experience was not only felt by me, but also by other attendees who expressed their experience on the FCP’s Facebook page."
"It was a wonderful week full of fun and fellowship and learning. It was great to meet new people and make new friends that have an interest in puppetry. I really learned a lot from all the classes."
"I know that both Jack and I were tremendously blessed by the fellowship and both of us were stretched. Really, FCP isn't just a fellowship; it's a family."
