George Garrett Grant Fund For Students

for the September 2024 Semester


The George Garrett Grant Fund 

ABCOPAD is happy to announce grant funds are available for the September 2024 semester from the George Garrett Grant Fund for students entering the ministry. Grant money is available for the purpose of aiding worthy students who are preparing to enter the ministry. These funds are from the earnings of the George Garrett Trust which is disbursed to several denominations, so it is a small pool of funds given to each group. All checks for approved groups are paid directly to the student's school.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Students must be entering the ministry
  • Students must complete the Grant Application
  • Students must sign the Declaration of Faith document
  • Applicants are required to write a 100 word essay answering the question, "Why are you a worthy student entering the ministry?"
  • A recent transcript must accompany all applications

Applications and the accompanying documents
will be submitted to the Garrett Grant Committee.

All applications must be submitted by May 31
for the subsequent September academic year.
No applications will be accepted after May 31, 2024.

Below please find links to the Grant Application, the Declaration of Faith document, as well as the Essay form. Please complete all three documents, save them to your computer and e-mail them, along with your recent transcript to Caryl Casey, ABCOPAD Treasurer, at EMAIL.
