MAKE A DIFFERENCE! SCHOLARSHIPS

The Caring for Clergy Endowment created by gifts to the Make a Difference! Campaign makes provision for several types of scholarships.

Make a Difference! Seminarian Scholarships: The presidents of the seven seminaries of the United Church of Christ are invited annually to submit a nominee for a Make a Difference! Seminarian Scholarship. The amount of the award is typically between $1,500 and $2,500 per recipient. The awards are transferred to the seminaries and applied toward tuition. Recipients must meet the general requirements. Interested parties should contact the president of one of the seminaries of the United Church of Christ.

Make a Difference! Educational Support Awards: Each year association committees on ministry are invited to nominate their students-in-care to be considered for a Make a Difference! Educational Support Award. These awards of approximately $500 are transferred to the recipients’ seminaries to offset tuition, books, or other educational expenses. Recipients must meet the general requirements. Interested parties should contact the committee on ministry of the association where they are in-care.

Make a Difference! Doctoral Studies Award: The Make a Difference! Doctoral Studies Award is given annually to members of the United Church of Christ who are engaged in a doctoral studies program that would prepare recipients to be considered for a teaching position at a seminary of the United Church of Christ. Persons enrolled in a doctoral studies program may request a set of application materials. Make a Difference! Doctoral Studies Awards of approximately $2,500 are made each year.

Make a Difference! Overseas/Global Partner Church Awards: A seminary scholarship for one student of an overseas/global partner church and for one international student studying at a UCC seminary are awarded each year. Continuing education funds for a clergyperson of an overseas/partner church are also awarded annually. These scholarships are given upon nomination by the Area Offices of our common Global Ministries/Wider Church Ministries and awards range from $1,000 to $2,000.

Qualifications:                                                                                                                                                                  Funds not available for those perusing the Doctor of Ministry Degree.
