The Degenring Scholarship is named after Anna Degenring and is
intented to support women through their undergraduate seminary degree.
The recepients must be a member in good standing at an American Baptist Church in NJ,
be at least a sophmore, and provide proof of eligibility to apply for the scholarship.
Past recepients include: The Rev. Bernedett Glover-Williams, Rev. Dee Dee Turlington,
and The Rev. April Van Ness. Also remember that the amount we award is dependant upon
the amount of contributions sent to our treasurer. Contributions may be sent at
anytime to our state treasurer earmarked as Degenring Scholarship Fund. To receive
information, please contact the Degenring Coordinator through this website.
Since our conference when we had no candidates, we have given two awards.
The first is to Suleima Rosario, a recent graduate of seminary but now going to nursing
school in preparation to becoming a medical missionary. The second is to
Melissa Doyle-Waid, a seminarian in need of financial support for her internship
with the regional office. Keep those gifts coming in—there are many women we can
Please pray that God will let you know your part in giving.
It is never to early to send in candidate names for scholarships!
We lost our wonderful Degenring Scholarship Chairwoman,
Rev. Marion Phillips on Nov. 22nd, 2008.
President Gail is currently working on establishing a new committee to handle this
important work. Keep your gifts coming in. In today’s economy, support of women going
into training for God’s work is even more important.
