Applications are being accepted for a wide variety of educational scholarships from The Episcopal Church for the 2022-2023 academic year. The deadline to apply is April 10. All applicants must be Episcopalian.
The scholarships — derived from the annual income of more than 45 trust funds established through bequests to The Episcopal Church — range from assistance for children of missionaries, bishops, and clergy to individuals seeking theological education and training. The maximum award is $10,000 per student.
At least nine of the scholarships are designated for Native American youth; others are specific to Black, Asian American, Chinese, and Hispanic students, as well as seminarians, among other listings. Applicants are encouraged to read the scholarship trust fund list and identify in their application those funds that best fit their situation.
The application form is available in English and Spanish. Online applications are required, and only complete applications will be considered. All applicants must have the endorsement of their Episcopal bishop.
Applications are reviewed by a scholarship committee composed of representatives from the Episcopal Church Executive Council, the church-at-large, the Treasurer’s Office, and various other Episcopal Church ministries.
