The Most Reverend Frederick James Hiltz Scholarship Fund
The Diocese of Toronto has set aside $250,000 to be used to award clergy, religious, postulants and laity across Canada ( with initial priority to the Diocese of Toronto) with a scholarship to fully fund the tuition for the 10 Day Palestine of Jesus Course at St. Georges College in Jerusalem, Israel.
It will also include funding to cover most if not all of the travel expenses. It is anticipated that 4-5 scholarships will be awarded each year.
The Scholarships will be known as The Most Reverend Frederick James Hiltz Scholarship Fund in honour of the retirement of our Primate and his passionate commitment to the Episcopal Church in Jerusalem.
Applications will be available through the offices of the Diocesan Bishops across the Canadian Church as well as the Office of the Bishop of Toronto. The deadline for applications is March 31 each year with the announcement of successful applicants in the second quarter of the year. For this year only, 2018, the application deadline is September 30, 2018.
The awards will be approved by the Bishop of Toronto with advice from an ad hoc advisory group, currently +John Chapman, +Michael Bedford-Jones, Brian Armstrong, Vice Chancellor of the Diocese of Toronto, and +Philip Poole as chair.
