Educational Grant Scholarships

 “Old” money can get lonely. Here’s how…

1918-two-dollar-bill

The Scudder Association was founded principally to provide financial assistance to the Scudder medical missions overseas. Funds were established for supporting both short and long term operational goals. To insure future staffing of the Indian mission hospitals, an Educational Grant fund was also created. This fund was to assist students “… in the fields of medicine, divinity and social work.”screen-shot-2016-11-23-at-11-00-17-am

Over the years a great deal of attention has been paid to the tremendous efforts being done in India. A body of work that is nothing short of a miracle. As a result member donations, particularly the fantastically generous ones, have been earmarked for the Indian hospitals.  While this good news for our Medical Mission Funds, it has left our Educational Grant Funds feeling rather lonely and neglected.

The Educational Grant Trust has never complained. It has soldiered along quietly for years providing educational assistance to countless of students, both here and abroad. While the cost of college and post graduate tuition has ballooned to impossible proportions, alas, our fund has not.

Our “Old” money is. . . well, old.new100

We need new money in order to provide any meaningful assistance to future generations of people who wish to be of “service to others”.   It is our intention that the new Scudder 2.0 network will make our Educational Grant program more accessible to applicants. As well as, making giving easier and more convenient, than ever.

new-moneyAs we spin the “Scudder 2.0” to full operational strength, we will be initiating a campaign to raise awareness of our scholarship program. We hope you will join us in making our “old” money less lonely.

In the meantime, we encourage you to see how easy, convenient and smart it is to help. Learn more
