Scholarship Description

Scholarship applications are open to women and non-binary persons enrolled or accepted into an undergraduate or graduate studies programs, or relevant coursework. To be eligible the candidate must be enrolled or participate in at least one class or significant volunteer ministry of comparable scope that they believe would forward the discernment of their call to a life in ordained ministry.

Secondarily it is open to those who are seeking priestly ordination in other denominations.

Applicants must submit a completed application form including essay (1,000 words), original artwork, a video, or an audio file of your voice that speaks to one or more of these: Your sense/experience of being called to ordained ministry; Your vision of women and non-binary priests in the Catholic Church, and how their leadership might change the Church as a whole; The gifts you believe you would bring to ordained ministry; and How you might explore a path to ordination or feminist ministry in the next year.
