2018 Antiochian Women Grant Letter and Scholarship Application is Available

March 1, 2018

Dear Reverend Fathers,

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

The Antiochian Women of North American Board are asking for your help in finding women in your parish who could benefit from the Antiochian Women's Educational Grant. Each year, the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Women of North America awards grants, in the amount of $500.00 each. The grant is meant to help women with the cost of education or training, which they have undertaken to improve their circumstances or those of their families.

We will be awarding these scholarships in July at the NAB Summer Meeting. You can help by passing along the enclosed application to the women in your parish you feel are eligible and would benefit from our scholarship. Please feel free to duplicate the application form if more than one woman in your parish wishes to apply. Also, please publicize the grant in your parish newsletter or Sunday Bulletin.

The qualifications for the grant are as follows. Applicants must:

  • Be a female, 26 years of age or older
  • Be a member in Good Standing of their Antiochian parish
  • Be actively involved in the worship, service, and social life of her parish 
  • Be applying for, or registered in, an academic or trade study program 
  • Demonstrate financial need

The deadline for the committee to receive the application and the material is June 1, 2018. Interested women may contact me with questions; they should send their completed application to:
