Women’s Scholarships in Majority World
The Case for Women’s Scholarships in The Majority World
This project addresses the lack of access to theological education among women leaders in the Majority world. While the Church has made progress in some places in increasing the leadership training and participation of women in leadership roles within local congregations, women’s education is still an enormous challenge. We have seen that women need greater access to formal education as a pathway to increased leadership authority in the local church and Christian community. Gifts given to Women’s Scholarship Fund will be used to grant scholarships to women leaders around the world who are not able to access educational opportunities due to financial hardship.
In this project, scholarships are given to female students who have been identified by one of our partner seminaries as having great potential and great need. We rely on the work of The Overseas Council Regional Directors and the strong partnerships The OC ministry has with these seminaries to direct the funding.
