The Rev. Dr. Matilda Dunn Scholarship
for a Woman of Color -- $1000.00
The Rev. Dr. Matilda E. Dunn was a woman of color, an immigrant from Africa who remained connected to her native Liberia as well as the African American community in the United States. She had a strong commitment to the history of women of color in the Episcopal Church, had served on the Episcopal Women’s History Project (EWHP) Board as its president, and was a founding member of the Liberian Episcopal Community of the USA. The Episcopal Women’s History Project (EWHP) has recently created a $1000 scholarship to a nontraditional Episcopalian/Anglican woman of color studying in the United States. More than one scholarship a year may be awarded based on the able students. This scholarship will serve to honor the life and work of The Rev. Dr. Matilda E. Dunn as a guiding pioneer among women of color in the Episcopal Church. The EWHP Grant and Scholarship Committee is to manage this scholarship.
