It is with great pleasure and excitement that the ECW Board announces the 2020 recipients of The Rt. Rev. John Bryson Chane Scholarship for Social Justice.

The scholarship will be awarded yearly and is open to graduating high school seniors who are college bound and attend a Church in the Diocese. Please join us in congratulating India Elizabeth Berry, Kelechi Ogbuokiri, and Caroline Thorne.
India Elizabeth Berry is from Christ Church, Georgetown. India graduated from Edmund Burke High School and plans to attend Kenyon College. Kelechi Ogbuokiri is from Trinity Episcopal Church, DC. He graduated from Saint Albans School and hopes to attend Occidental College. Caroline Thorne is from Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in Silver Spring.

As Episcopal Church Women (ECW) we continually strive to embody Christ's vision for the world by loving one another as he loves us. We are committed to taking leadership in identifying social injustices and pursuing action for change in response to our Baptismal Covenant.
Our mission is to build an accepting atmosphere where every woman is welcomed and valued for her individual ministry.
The motto of the ECW of the Diocese of Washington is:
Then Jesus answered her, "Woman, great is your faith..." [Matthew 15:28]
