The Nancy E. Roach Memorial Scholarship for Seminary Students

 
 

How can the Christian faith be a catalyst for social change?

 
 

Transform Network is honored to be partnering with the Ruth E. Roach Memorial Scholarship Fund to identify recipients of a new scholarship honoring the memory of Nancy E. Roach, who was a devout woman of faith who believed Christianity could make the world a better place.

The Nancy E. Roach Memorial Scholarship for Seminary Students is dedicated to awarding a seminarian tuition support for excellence and innovation in social justice ministry and theological reflection. This scholarship award is given to the most exemplary essay that addresses the following questions:

  • How can the Christian faith be a catalyst for social change?
  • How can faith communities be engaged in social justice?
  • What is your personal aspiration for bringing the realms of Christianity and social justice closer together?
  • What is your theological basis for this aspiration?
  • How will you put this into action?

The winning essay will be publicized widely through Transform Network’s progressive Christian partners and media. The $5,000 (minimum) financial award for this scholarship is a one-time award.

The next application deadline will be April 1, 2019. Sign up for our email newsletter (below) to be notified when applications open up again for 2019.
