French Church Scholarship

[The application period has ended. Please, come back on July 1st 2018 to apply next year]

Our historical tradition as a sanctuary for immigrants and a place of learning for the deserving is fundamental to our mission. In addition to offering free French Classes on Sunday mornings (see the section under Church Life), we offer francophone high school and undergraduate students grants to assist with their educational expenses. Grants of $1,000 are available on a competitive basis to those students that meet certain criteria and have their applications approved by the church committee. 


Students aged 16 to 24 are invited to participate in a scholarship contest being held by the French Church of St-Esprit. Five prizes of $1,000 are to be awarded to the best submissions.  

Contestants will be required, in good faith, to answer a ten question multiple choice test and to write two 300 word essays, one in French, and the other in English.

This competition is open to any francophone student and resident of the United States from 16 to 24 years old between July 1st and September 30th of the year of the said contest and enrolled full time in an Institute of higher education for at least a semester.

Entries can be submitted online on this page from July 1st to July 31st, midnight EST.
