Thanks to the generosity of Deacon Donald and Mrs. Sparling, Gabriel Network is pleased to offer the Lorraine Sparling Memorial Scholarship. This Scholarship provides educational and professional development assistance to current Gabriel Network clients.  

How Can the Sparling Scholarship Help?

The scholarship provides funds of up to $2,000 per year to women who wish to continue their education. This includes pursuing higher education or other vocational training. For women who want to study at a university or work towards furthering their careers, the Sparling Scholarship is meant to make that more accessible.

We understand that raising a child can make it seem like you need to put your dreams on hold. We want to challenge that and do what we can to ensure you can continue pursuing your goals.

How do I Apply?

Applications are always welcome. Each application is reviewed by our scholarship committee on a rolling basis as they are received. A decision on each application will be made within 4-6 weeks. This scholarship is open to all women who are active participants in the Gabriel Network.
