Wake Divinity Scholars Visit

February 27 - 28Wingate Hall

Description

The Wake Forest University School of Divinity will invite up to ten admitted applicants to its campus in Winston-Salem, North Carolina on February 27 – 28, 2014 to discover how Wake Forest can transform their personal faith into a decision to lead. 

Theological education in the 21st century has to meet the needs of an evolving church and world. The Wake Forest community offers an ecumenical environment where voices of students and faculty engage contemporary religious life with intentionality.  Students here have the ability to participate in the evolution of ministry.

Each year, the Wake Divinity Scholars Visit draws together the most promising leaders who will make significant contributions to the world in which we live. The School of Divinity combines the academic resources of a national university with the teaching focus of a small college to create a unique learning environment. During the visit, invited applicants will visit classes, meet with faculty and students, and begin to form valuable relationships with future colleagues who are also interested in justice, reconciliation, and compassion as you think together about how to define who our neighbor is in a multi-faith world.

How do I apply?

There is no separate application for scholarship consideration. Applicants who are eligible to be considered for the Scholars Visit must have a minimum undergraduate grade point average of 3.3.

Applicants who meet the requirements should complete the online application for admission and submit all supporting documents no later than February 1, 2014.
