Scholarships

Prop Corp Grants for Churches of Christ in Victoria

Thanks to the sponsorship of Prop Corp, grants are awarded each year to Churches of Christ employing ministry students who are studying at Stirling. The grants contribute to the work of forming future leaders and ministers by the Conference of Churches of Christ in Victoria and Tasmania.

The total amount of grant money available is $10,000.

The aim of these grants is to provide incentive and assistance for Churches of Christ employing a student minister who is studying at Stirling.

Grants for 2016 have been awarded. Check back here in 2017.

Hindmarsh Trust Scholarship for students coming from South Australia

Thanks to the sponsorship of the Hindmarsh Church of Christ Trust, Stirling has scholarship available for a South Australian student who comes to study full-time at the College.

The total amount of the scholarship is $10,000.

The award is contingent on suitable applications being received.

Applications may be made for the grant to continue in ensuing years.

The trustees’ primary intention is for the money to support a new student from South Australia to come to the College and study theology and ministry. The money could pay for accommodation in a one bedroom unit for nearly two years, but it could also be used for tuition or even living expenses with the usual caveats, particularly that the student must attend lectures and pass assessments. The scholarship will be paid in two halves – immediately after the census dates in successive semesters.

Please note:

  1. Electronic or faxed applications will not be accepted.
  2. The scholarship is for a student who currently resides in South Australia and is embedded in a Churches of Christ community.
  3. Applications should be received by the beginning of February. However, applications received after this date may be considered in a second round.
  4. Scholarships will be paid in two halves; the first half on 1st April and second half on 1st September.

The scholarships will be awarded at the discretion of Stirling’s Grants and Scholarships Committee. See application form (here) for further details.
