Provides grants to students whose permanent residence is in one of the following states: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Delaware, Maryland, District of Columbia, Virginia, West Virginia, or North Carolina.

The Roothbert Fund scholarships awards yearly grants and works to foster fellowship among grant recipients. While the Fund does not emphasize any particular form of religious practice or worship, it seeks to provide support to persons motivated by spiritual values. The Fund has awarded grants to persons entering a wide range of careers, however, preference will be given to those who can satisfy high scholastic requirements and are considering careers in education.

Applicant interviews are scheduled on extremely short notice in March and are held in New York, New Haven, Philadelphia and Washington, DC and the Fund does not cover cost of travel for interviewees.

Applicants awarded a grant will be obligated to attend at least one weekend fellowship conference sponsored by the Fund during the first year on grant. Grant renewals are reviewed annually. Because funds are limited, the Roothbert Fund typically supports Fellows during the pursuit of one academic degree program only.

Award Value

Grants awarded between $2,000 and $3,000.
