Mary Magdalene Scholarship

The St. Mary Magdalene Scholarship Fund was created by a generous bequest of a long-time parishioner of St. Mary the Virgin. The gift of $1 million is to endow a fund to be used for college scholarships for young women from the parish.

The principal of the fund is to remain in perpetuity with the income each year being used for scholarships. This is the fourth year of scholarship awards. We anticipate that approximately $40,000 will be available for distribution among the applicants.

The recipients will be selected by the Rector upon the recommendation of the selection committee, the Vestry, and with input from the youth group leaders, Sunday school director and youth acolyte coordinator who have worked with these young women over the years.

In order for the selection committee to determine financial need, a copy of the parents’ latest filed Form 1040 (summary pages) will be due along with the application.

Young women from St. Mary’s can apply if you will be attending college for the 2020-2021 academic year. Application is shown below. APPLICATION DEADLINE IS MARCH 1, 2020.

NOTE: If you have already been a scholarship recipient, use this application form. APPLICATION FOR PREVIOUS APPLICANTS
