Educational Grants Available from Baltimore Yearly Meeting


The BYM Educational Grants Committee is accepting applications for the 2023-2024 academic year from members or regular attenders of Monthly Meetings associated with BYM (or from their children). Grants may be applied to expenses associated with undergraduate attendance at accredited post-secondary educational institutions. Attendance may be either full- or part-time. Grants will be awarded based on multiple criteria, including financial need and the Committee’s assessment of an applicant’s statement of purpose and its consistency with Friends’ testimonies. Grant limits are up to $2,000 per grantee per year, for a cumulative total of $8,000. Applications will be accepted until May 15th 2023. Award decisions will be made in June and notifications sent by early July. For further information or if you have questions, please contact the Yearly Meeting Office at 301-774-7663. 

Completed applications should be returned by postal mail or emailed to 

Visioning Project Report

In 2010 and 2011, Baltimore Yearly Meeting undertook a project to consider the vision of the Yearly Meeting community. As a part of that project, each committee was asked to respond to a set of queries that had been promulgated by the ad hoc Visiting Ministers Committee. The Educational Loan Committee's responses are available here.
