Antiochian Women's Grant

January 31, 2015

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 are able to award grants, in the amount of $500 each, to help women return to education or training in order to improve their circumstances and those of their families.

We will be awarding these scholarships in July at Archdiocese Convention in Boston. 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:

  1. The applicant must be a female over * 26 years* of age;
  2. The applicant must be a member in good standing of a parish of the Antiochian Archdiocese;
  3. The applicant must be actively involved in her parish;
  4. The applicant must be applying for or registered in an academic or trade program of study; and
  5. The applicant must demonstrate financial need.

The application deadline is June 1, 2015. Interested women can direct their inquiries and/or send applications to Cindy Nimey (315) 7967910, 3500 Snowden Hill Road, Clinton, NY 13323.

Thank you for helping us with this very important program. We look forward to receiving applications from the women in your parish.

Yours in Christ,

Cindy Nimey
Chairperson Grant Committee
North American Board
