Procedure Theology Masters Scholarships
The deadline for applications for the 2021-2022 academic year is 1 April 2021. To be eligible for the scholarship you must first apply to the Master’s programme in Theology. Once your application has been checked and you are deemed admissible to the program, you can apply for the scholarship. In order to do so, please send the following documents to [email protected]:
- A letter of motivation
- Two letters of recommendation
- An academic writing sample/essay. It is preferable that the subject of the writing sample is related to the academic discipline of theology, broadly conceived (including biblical, historical, empirical, or constructive/systematic perspectives). The essay should be between 2000-2500 words (excluding bibliography).
- A Skype interview may be part of the scholarship procedure.
Please note that we will not be able to consider your application for funding until your application for admission to the Master’s programme has been processed. Application to the Master’s programme is free of charge and non-binding.
Out of all applicants the selection committee selects applicants who have demonstrated the capacity to make a significant contribution to the academic excellence of the Faculty. This criterion can be assessed on the basis of the academic transcript, a writing sample (e.g. Bachelor’s thesis), a motivational letter, recommendation letters, and/or a Skype interview. Please be aware of the fact that the selection committee will only start their procedure after the first of April 2021. The committee strives to assign the scholarship to one of the candidates before the first of May 2021.
If there are more excellent applicants than scholarships available, the selection committee prioritizes the applications using societal contribution and contribution to internationalization policy as additional criteria. These criteria allow the committee to select applicants who can demonstrate extra-curricular activities in their motivation letter and CV, such as volunteer work whilst studying, and a clear vision about how a second degree contributes to their ability to take up responsible positions in the Church or society.
By contribution to internationalization policy we define students that might be future ambassadors for the Faculty in their home countries, for example, students that are coming from academic institutions with which our Faculty has currently a partnership, or those that are affiliated with the academic institutions, organizations, and networks that the Faculty would like to engage with in the future. This criterion can be assessed on the basis of the applicant’s CV, letter of motivation, and/or the applicant’s letters of recommendation.
