There are many Episcopal scholarships for Christians available, although many of the larger churches sponsor their own programs. If you are a member of a large Episcopal church, you may want to check with them to see what college Episcopalian scholarships and grants they have available.
The Episcopal Church places a high value on helping its members obtain college educations. Episcopalians are strong believers in community service and helping the needy. They believe it is their Christian duty to help their members through college and they expect these same members to return one day and help others less fortunate make their way to college as well.
