LWF scholarships in theology, development and diakonia

The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) is calling for scholarship applications for studies and training related to theological, diaconal and development work. “We encourage all churches to submit applications that respond well to existing capacity needs,” says Marina Doelker, LWF Secretary for Diakonia and Development. “We are specifically eager to see women being promoted – for diaconal, and particularly for theological scholarships,” she adds.

Short-term scholarships of up to one year for training courses, workshops, exchange programs or research projects in both areas are also available. Applications can only be submitted through LWF member churches. Individuals interested in a scholarship should contact their church office. The deadline for applications is 1 October 2019.
