Ruth Gosnell Education Fund
Springfield Presbyterian Church

The late Ruth Gosnell, a former Baltimore County teacher and principal, wanted to provide loans to College and Graduate degree students. The Ruth Gosnell Education Fund, established in 1982 by the Springfield Presbyterian Church's Session, provides interest-free loans to full-time deserving college juniors, seniors, and graduate school students. Regardless of religion, all applicants will be given impartial consideration; and repayment of the interest-free loan does not start until 6 months after graduation.
Loan applications will be evaluated in the late winter on academic performance, financial need, and a short essay. The only limitation is that students have attained junior status in an accredited institution of Higher Education by Fall 2013. Loans will be available for the 2013 Fall term.
Interested students can receive an application form for a loan by calling Springfield Presbyterian Church at 410-795-6152.
