Information on the Emma Norris Seminarian Fund:
The Emma Norris Seminarian Fund was started in 1930 to assist ministerial students as they prepared themselves for Christian work.  Emmas Norris was the wife of a minister and a member of First Presbyterian Church in Austin, Texas.  The fund was named  to honor her work in the local church as well as in the Presbytery.  The only qualifications are: That a student be in seminary and under the care of Mission Presbytery.  A monetary gift is usually given at Christmas and the gift varies as to funds available.  Many students have benefited over the years.
