University of Edinburgh / Langham Partnership Joint PhD Scholarship Award

BY ccrossley | 16 August 2012 |

The University of Edinburgh School of Divinity and Langham Partnership are pleased to announce a special PhD scholarship in the theological disciplines at University of Edinburgh starting in October 2013.

Langham Partnership is a registered Christian charity in the evangelical tradition, which grows out of the international ministry of Rev. Dr John Stott. Over the past 30 years it has helped to sponsor over 300 scholars to complete PhD degrees, and it currently supports 30 students in the UK and Europe who are on PhD programmes. Former scholars work in a range of Christian ministries, including college and seminary Principals and Presidents, Academic Deans, Bishops, and leaders of Christian agencies. Funds for the scholarship scheme come from the giving of Christian individuals, churches and trusts. Further details about the work of the charity, and how donations can be made towards its work, can be found on the Scholarship pages of the Langham Partnership website www.langhampartnership.org

The work of the Langham Partnership scholarship programme is focused on the Majority (Developing)World, and suitably qualified research students in theological disciplines and who come from the Majority (Developing) World are invited to apply for the joint Langham Partnership / Edinburgh PhD Scholarship. The Scholarship is part of a commitment by the University of Edinburgh School of Divinity and Langham Partnership to enhance the international dimensions of theological study, and also to further theological education in the Majority World through assisting with the training of strategic church leaders from there.

The Langham Partnership / Edinburgh PhD Scholarship will cover university tuition fees and make a small contribution towards maintenance costs. Starting in September 2013, the PhD sponsorship is awarded for up to 3 years, depending on satisfactory progression. It is open to applicants across the theological disciplines of biblical studies, theology, ethics, history of Christianity, and world Christianity.

Applicants should apply to both the University of Edinburgh and Langham Partnership, and on each application indicate clearly that they intend to apply for the joint Langham Partnership / University of Edinburgh PhD Scholarship. An application form for the Langham Partnership Scholarship scheme, and the eligibility criterion, can be found on the scholarship pages of the Langham Partnership UK website www.langhampartnership.org.

The closing date for applications is 30th November 2012.
