The Diane Fish Memorial Scholarship




The 2018 Diane Fish Memorial Scholarship application follows on page 2 & 3. The requested information must reach the Pilgrim Lutheran Church Altar Guild mailbox at 1817 Warwick Avenue, Warwick, RI 02889 by May 1, 2018, at noon.  This is the same date that most colleges require students to make their decision of where to attend…an important date to note on your calendar!


 Given higher education trends that impact students, the 2018 qualifications for this undergraduate scholarship have changed. Members of Pilgrim Lutheran Church (men and women of any age) may apply if planning to enroll full time as an undergraduate in an accredited higher education institution in the USA or abroad. This includes current high school seniors, former high school graduates anticipating freshman enrollment, and also upper class students currently enrolled in a college. Priority will be given to an applicant who has not received this scholarship in the past.


The Scholarship Committee may schedule interviews with applicants who surface as finalists. We hope to announce the name of one recipient and present a $1000 check before the end of May.


We applaud your good intention to continue your education! Thank you for your interest to apply for this Scholarship honoring another gifted Pilgrim Church member, Diane Fish. This Scholarship is supported by the Fish family in Diane’s Memory.


If you have any questions regarding the scholarship application or selection process, please contact Priscilla Angelo by email ( or telephone (401-935-4406).
