The Roothbert Fund was created in 1958 by Albert and Toni Roothbert to help men and women in need of financial aid to further their educations. The fund is a small, nearly all-volunteer scholarship fund based in New York City, which awards yearly grants, and works to foster fellowship among grant recipients. Roothbert Fund Scholarships are open to all in the United States regardless of sex, age, color, nationality or religious background. While the fund does not emphasize any particular form of religious practice or worship, it seeks to provide support to persons motivated by spiritual values. The fund has awarded grants to persons entering a wide range of careers. However, preference will be given to those who can satisfy high scholastic requirements and are considering careers in education. In making a decision to apply, applicants should also keep in mind that if they are awarded a grant, they will be obligated to attend at least one weekend fellowship conference sponsored by the fund during the first year on grant.
