  • The Diocesan ECW administers and helps finance the Lex Mathews Scholarship Program, begun more than two decades ago by family and friends of the Rev. Lex Mathews. It is geared toward women of the diocese, age 23 and older, seeking either specialized training in vocational or technical skills, a degree or certification below the masters or doctorate level, or continuing education courses for upgrading job skills.

    The scholarships, awarded annually in the spring, are an effort to help women, many of whom are solely responsible for their families, to achieve self-sufficiency by getting the education necessary to enter or reenter the workforce. Preference is given to Episcopalians or someone sponsored by an Episcopalian.
