Bishop John Bryson Chane Scholarship for Social Justice
The Bishop John Bryson Chane Scholarship for Social Justice was established by the ECW Board in 2011 in honor of the work of Bishop John Bryson Chane. Grants are awarded yearly to graduating seniors in the Diocese of Washington who have an interest in social justice. The deadline for applications this year is March 30, 2019.
Students must be active members of an Episcopal church within one of the eight regions of the Diocese of Washington, demonstrate a commitment to social justice, have plans to attend college the fall after their graduation, and submit an application describing their interest. Applications may be downloaded below and must be postmarked by March 1st to be considered for this year.
Applications must be accompanied by an official transcript showing a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0. A reference letter from the student's rector and a school administrator or counselor must also be submitted. For further information, contact Carol Tyrance-Graves
The 2018 recipients included Edwina Heroe from St. John’s Episcopal Church in Mount Rainier, Maryland and Zachary Smith of Holy Comforter Episcopal Church in Washington, DC. The ECW Board is proud to have recognized these young people in the amount of $1000 each and we wish them well in their first year of college.
