Episcopal Church scholarship applications for the 2019-2020 academic year are now accepted

March 1, 2019

Applications are now being accepted for educational scholarships from The Episcopal Church for the 2019-2020 academic year.

The scholarships are derived from annual income of designated trust funds established by generous donors through bequests to The Episcopal Church.  A number of these scholarships support students enrolled in theological education and training. 

Other trust funds provide modest scholarships for children of missionaries, bishops and clergy, and other groups covering a wide range of eligibility.  When funds are available, the maximum award is $10,000 per student.

Lists of trust funds and scholarships and other important information can be found here.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to read each trust and identify in the application those trust funds that best fit their own profile.

A scholarship applicant must be an Episcopalian and must have the endorsement of his/her bishop.

The application form is available in English here and in Spanish here.

Online applications are required. Deadline for applications is April 5. Only complete applications will be considered.

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 ministries of The Episcopal Church.
