The deadline approaches for educational scholarships from The Episcopal Church for the 2021-2022 academic year.

The scholarships are derived from annual income of designated trust funds established by generous donors through bequests to The Episcopal Church. The listing of trust funds and scholarships found here includes information related to the intended use of scholarship funds.  A number of these scholarships are designated for students enrolled in theological education and training. Others provide modest scholarships for children of missionaries, bishops or clergy, as well as other groups covering a wide range of eligibility.  When funds are available, the maximum award is $10,000 per student.

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 or her bishop.

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

Online applications are required. Deadline for applications is April 11. 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 other ministries of the Episcopal Church.
