Employer : The Fund for Theological Education
Level : Masters
The Congregational Fellowship enables a congregation to provide significant financial support for a student during his or her first year of seminary.
This matching grant program doubles a congregation’s investment in the theological education of a young person whose call to ministry it has helped to cultivate.
Congregational Fellowships are for students entering their first year in a full-time Master of Divinity program.
How the program works
- The nominating congregation commits $1,000 – $5,000 toward the cost of the student’s first year.
- If the student is selected for the fellowship, FTE matches the congregation’s commitment dollar for dollar, up to $5,000.
To be considered, you must be nominated by a congregation.
The FTE Congregational Fellowship substantially reduces the cost of a student’s first year in seminary, providing funds for tuition and living expenses.
More importantly, it enables a congregation to give a tangible expression of abundant support and confidence in a young person’s calling as he or she takes a significant step toward becoming a minister.
To be eligible for the Congregational Fellowship you must be :
- entering the first year of a full-time Master of Divinity program at a seminary accredited by the Association of Theological Schools. (You are not eligible if you plan to or are already enrolled for M.T.S., Th.M., or M.A. degree program.)
- a U.S. or Canadian citizen
- age 35 years or younger
- able to participate in all fellowship activities
Congregational Fellows must be nominated by a congregation. As part of the application package, a candidate’s nomination should be submitted by the congregation that will make the financial commitment required for the fellowship.
