Adeline Ross Scholarship Fund
The Adeline Ross Scholarship Fund provides funds for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as funding for various spiritual growth programs.
Adeline Ross was an Episcopal Deaconess active in the Wind River Valley from 1915 to 1949. While at St. Thomas she used her own money to offer loans to students for higher educational needs. When she left, the church continued this ministry to students. The earliest records of this educational fund created in her honor are from 1967, with reports of at least 21 loans given out.
The principal is now invested, and the interest earned is given out through application to the Fund. The yearly award amount for each student is up to $1,000, when available from the Fund’s earnings. In the early 90’s the scholarship committee decided to change the fund to an outright scholarship grant rather than a loan to be repaid.
