Phillis, Rose & Fanny Memorial Scholarship
This memorial scholarship was named in honor of the three enslaved women who are buried in the Cathedral of St. John's cemetery. Their headstone and four documents are the only evidence we have of their lives. We know at least one of the women was of African descent and it is likely the other two were of African or Indigenous descent, or of mixed ancestry.

The memorial scholarship is for individuals who identify as Black/African/African American or Indigenous/American Indian/Native American. Recipients of this scholarship will receive free registration to the Center for Reconciliation course "Slavery, Emancipation, and Race in New England," taught by Dr. Joanne Pope Melish. Scholarships will be awarded competitively.

Please note: For spring 2019, there are two different class sessions at two different locations. Please be sure let us know which location you prefer by answering the question below which class session you would like to attend.
