Community Racial Equity Scholarship

Historically, American institutions have contributed to the unequal and sometimes violent treatment of many of its citizens. Recent tragic events have only highlighted the accumulative angst and dead-end policies that continue to fuel racial unrest and poverty. To ensure that our community supports racial equity and social justice with advocacy and meaningful actions, the Racial Equity Team at Newman Congregational Church, UCC is offering scholarship aid - between $3k-$4k to individuals who identify as Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), who live in Southern New England and who are pursuing education beyond high school in 2021-22.

racial justice

As a church, we confess our complicity and participation in the abhorrent sin of racism that has plagued our nation for over 400 years. We make the claim as people of faith that every person is a beloved child of God and is to be welcomed among us and to be treated with dignity and respect. We seek to respond from our faith perspective, as followers of the teachings of Jesus Christ, teachings that make it imperative that we speak humbly, but boldly, against injustice to God's children. Thus, we seek to engage in programming and study that leads to an experience of true equity for our neighbors of color.
