Global Women’s Fund 2017 Scholarships and Grants

In May 2017, the Global Women’s Fund was pleased to award seven scholarships to women pursuing higher education and grants for four seminars.

The awards included the first Bishop Catherine S. Roskam Scholarship, established in 2017 to honor Bishop Roskam’s vision and initiative in establishing the Fund for the education of global Anglican women and girls. The recipient is Elisa, a priest in the Anglican Church in Mexico, where few clergy who are women have higher degrees. Elisa will pursue advanced biblical studies with a research interest in Jesus’ pedagogy in The Gospel of John. She will use what she learns to develop teaching methodologies for her own teaching, educating others in Mexico in the Christian faith and life.

The scholarships and seminar grants awarded in 2017 were:
