Apply for a scholarship from the Center for Bold Leadership

You can apply for funding from the CBL. Funding is only available for classes, retreats and workshops hosted by the CBL. Scholarships are fully-funded through the generous support of the Thriving in Ministry grant from the Lilly Endowment, Inc. and are granted at the discretion of the Center. Some events will require travel or housing. Priority is given to pastors in rural areas and of small-member churches. 

We support:

  • Early-career, rural and small-member church clergy for select workshops and continuing education classes offered through the Center for Bold Leadership only.
  • Leadership Development Cohort participants in any events (other than CBL events) that are offered by the Seminary during their time in the Cohort.
  • Attendance to the Transformation Retreat (travel, lodging, resources) for early-career, rural, and small-member church clergy.
  • Students applying for entrance to the School of Spiritual Direction Beyond Borders Certification Cohort.
