The Meeting House provides a range of scholarships and financial supports for members and friends engaging in study, mission service and life-changing activities. The four type of support offered are:
The Garrett-Claxton fund provides limited scholarship grants to members of the Meeting House’s “extended family” for educational purposes. The majority of the awards have gone to needy undergraduate, graduate, or continuing education students for books, tuition, and other related expenses.
The Edna Banes Fellowship program provides limited funding for innovative mission and service, research, or educational ventures. The fellowships are designed to encourage “life-changing activities” that permit new and imaginative ways to develop personally and to enhance the spiritual life of the Meeting House community.
Through the church’s operating budget, the Meeting House supports theological education and training for individuals related to the congregation.
The Meeting House established the Sengel Scholar programs at Yale Divinity School and Union Presbyterian Seminary, in support of postgraduate studies for individuals from developing countries.
