Phoebe was a woman commended for her outstanding service to the church, and Paul urged the church to support her (Romans 16:1-2). At Union School of Theology we recognise that many women desire to serve the church and are keen to study theology, but are often hindered by the financial cost. Therefore, we are thrilled to offer these scholarships to equip women to be a blessing to Christ’s church.
The Phoebe Scholarships are for women who are:
- Able to demonstrate a deep personal commitment to theological study
- Working towards a clear goal in Christian ministry (such as a pastoral care role in a church, cross-cultural mission, working with a Christian agency, teaching, writing, taking first steps to theological research, etc)
- Recommended by a supporting church or Christian ministry (such as cross-cultural mission, Christian agency)
- Able to raise the rest of the financial support required (we can offer help and advice on how to go about this)
Preference will be given to students intending to study full-time, but applications for part-time study will be considered.
The scholarships will fully cover tuition fees, or where students are able to gain Student Loan funding for fees, the scholarship can cover accommodation on campus. Students will receive mentored support from female staff throughout their studies.
If you are interested in applying for the scholarship, please get in touch with our Admissions Team for further details.
Prospective applicants are welcome to visit the campus for the Open Day or a Taster Day.
Applications and supporting documents should be submitted by 1 May 2020.
