Episcopalian Scholarships

As a faith that values free thought almost as much as free food, it’s no surprise the Episcopal Church is so committed to helping its members find money for college by providing both local scholarships and national awards. Episcopalian scholarships exist to assist members of the faith in attending college and achieving their educational goals. The Episcopalian faith believes strongly in providing service to the community and financial aid to those in need. Plus, organizations offering Episcopalian scholarships, like many other scholarship providers, hope that by giving you scholarship money now, they’re putting you in a position where you may be able to donate to their cause once you’re wealthy and successful. Just think—if you win an Episcopalian scholarship, avoid student loans, and eventually graduate and get a good job, why wouldn’t you want to return the favor a few years down the road and help a student just like you pay for school? Well, lots of people funding Episcopalian scholarships think that way—they might say it was the Christian thing to do.
