Nominations Sought For Undergraduate And Ministry Fellowships

Fund for Theological EducationThe Fund for Theological Education is asking college, university and seminary educators and clergy to nominate diverse students with leadership gifts for undergraduate and ministry fellowships. College educators and campus ministers are urged to nominate sophomores and juniors for $2,000 FTE undergraduate fellowships. Additionally, congregations may nominate young church members for Congregational Fellowships ranging between $2,000 and $5,000. Seminary deans or presidents may nominate first-year Master of Divinity students for $10,000 FTE Ministry Fellowships.

"Church and society are in need of capable, compassionate, young leaders who reflect the diversity of community and country," said FTE Director of Ministry Fellowships Ellen Echols Purdum. FTE provides more than $1.5 million annually in fellowships and support to gifted young people from all denominations and racial/ethnic backgrounds.
