World Council of Churches Scholarship

The WCC scholarships program is a global scholarship progrram by helping the placement of students in countries other than their own. Theological and non-theological scholarships, including group training scholarships, are intended to provide an opportunity for ecumenical learning through exposure to other cultures and faith traditions, in addition to appropriate study which combines academic study and practical experience. This project requires churches or ecumenical organizations to assess the needs for new knowledge and skills to improve their work, and only then to identify the individual or group who they will nominate for a scholarship. The nominating body contracts to use the student in an identified role on his/her return; the student contracts to use what he/she has learned in that role.  Students can learn about the scholarship procedure by going to the WCC website.
