Transform Network is excited to announce that three seminary students will be receiving scholarships this year from the Nancy E. Roach Memorial Scholarship for Seminary Students, in partnership with the Ruth E. Roach Memorial Scholarship Fund:

  • Alicia Crosby is starting this Fall at Duke Divinity School to pursue a Master of Theological Studies' degree. As she explains, "My intent is to use my time there to explore how Christian hegemony's sociopolitical impact is a form of religious violence that leads to widespread spiritual trauma in the world."

  • Darrin Sims is returning student at Candler Divinity School at Emory University. He currently teaches, preaches, and organizes in Atlanta, Georgia. In his essay "Exiting the Wilderness," he presents his unique ministry model entitled "The Landing Spot."

  • Whitney Bond is currently a third-year PhD student in the field of Theology, Ethics, and the Human Sciences at Chicago Theological Seminary. Her research centers on womanist approaches to bridging gaps between pastoral care and practical theology within human sexuality and spiritual spaces, primarily Black Churches and for queer identifying individuals.
