Meet our Regional Ambassadors (RAs)

Our volunteers interview applicants in the U.S. and Canada

We think ABF has the greatest volunteers in the Christian Science community! We couldn’t do our work without these generous volunteers, whom we call our Regional Ambassadors (RAs). Our RAs interview our applicants and become our liaisons in the Field, connecting one-on-one with ABF’s recipients, lending their discernment and wisdom to help us make the crucial decisions on funding our students.
