Scholarship Funds

The Gertrude Butts Fund, a non-profit corporation organized in 1929, and closely affiliated with the Diocese of Newark, seeks applicants for the 2018-2019 academic year. The Fund was established to carry out provisions of the will of George Butts in memory of his daughter Gertrude who died at the age of 14. Income from the fund is used to provide collegiate or vocational scholarship assistance to youth in need in the Diocese of Newark. Application deadline for 2018-2019 academic year: May 4, 2018.

Established by The Rt. Rev. George E. Rath, 7th Bishop of Newark, this education fund provides children of canonically resident clergy with extra financial assistance for college expenses at accredited four-year education institutions. 

The Rankin Scholarship has been suspended until further notice.

Established in 1980 in honor of Episcopal Church Women member Mary Rankin, this scholarship is open to members of an Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Newark, who are involved in church, and school and/or community activities and have applied for admission to an accredited institution of higher learning.
