The Doctoral Fellowship (DOC) program encourages current Ph.D./Th.D. students to consider theological education as their vocation. The Institute awards up to ten two-year Doctoral Fellowships of $2,000 per year. In addition, Fellows constitute a peer learning cohort that meets six times over a two year period. Applicants must be Ph.D. or Th.D. students, currently in their first or second year of doctoral study in an accredited graduate program in the United States or Canada. Eligible proposals should describe the applicantÔÇÖs commitment to the Christian church and theological education and suggest how his or her doctoral work would be an appropriate preparation of a career in theological school teaching.
