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 that the other two were either of African or Indigenous, descent of a mixture. The memorial scholarship is for museum or historic site staff, independent tour guides or students who identify as Black/African/African American or Indigenous/American Indian/Native American. Scholarships will be awarded competitively. *Essays due by Feb 28th, 2018*. The three winners will receive free admission to both days of the Interpreting Slavery and Freedom workshop.
