About the Scholarship Provider:
About Albert Baker Fund: The Albert Baker Fund (ABF) is a charitable organization that promotes Christian Science and has its headquarters in the United States of America. Active Christian Scientists who are nationals of one of the 13 countries in which ABF has established a program are eligible to receive post-secondary educational grants from the American Bible Foundation (ABF), but not student loans. The candidate must demonstrate both a good academic status and financial need in order to be considered for one of our grants.
The Albert Baker Fund has been assisting those who practice Christian Science with their higher education costs for more than 50 years now. We recognize the significance of a good education, much like Mary Baker Eddy, who established the Christian Science movement, and Albert Baker, her older brother. Since 2004, we have increased our reach to the point where we are now able to provide grants to qualified students in a total of 13 African countries, in addition to the United Kingdom, Europe, and the Philippines.
