The Charles White Memorial Scholarship is available to ministerial students who are from or currently work in the Pacific Western Region, and whose goals may include the one or more of the following: Parish work; Religious education; Clinical pastoral education; Community ministry; Another related UU Ministry.
The Ministerial Credentialing Office has limited scholarship funds available to students enrolled full-time or at least half time in a Masters of Divinity degree program leading to fellowship as a Unitarian Universalist (UU) minister. Aspirant or Candidate status is required. Deadline for receipt of financial applications each year is on or around April 15th. Applicants for financial aid are automatically considered for scholarships and no additional material is required, except where noted.
In addition, priority is given those grantees that have demonstrated outstanding ministerial ability secondarily to students with the greatest financial need, especially those who hold historically marginalized identities. Grantees will be primarily citizens of the United States and Canada, and if they continue to excel in both academic and social performance may be eligible for additional scholarships.
