The Roothbert Fund Scholarships

The principal focus of the Roothbert Fund is its Scholarships Program, through which it makes grants for undergraduate or graduate study at accredited colleges or universities. Scholarships may only be applied to study at an accredited institution based in the United States. The Fund seeks candidates who are "motivated by spiritual values," and works to foster fellowship among them.


The Fund is a small, nearly all-volunteer scholarship fund based in New York City, which awards yearly grants and works to foster fellowship among grant recipients. Once a year, the Fund accepts applications for grants, which include essays, transcripts and recommendations. From these written applications, the Fund identifies a group of finalists to be invited for a brief personal interview. On the basis of this interview, the Fund typically selects about 20 new scholarship recipients each year.

Obtaining an application: Because of its staff limitations, the Fund designates a three-month period from November 1st to January 31st each year in which printed applications forms are made available. Because forms are revised each year, applicants are discouraged from copying forms that may be on file with financial aid offices, or have been saved from prior years.
