Richard and Helen Brown United Church of Christ Pastoral Scholarships
Deadline: Check with individual Corem Bodies for deadlines.
Richard and Helen Brown left approximately $5 million to the United Church Foundation to establish an endowment to provide pastoral scholarships. The Browns had a long-term commitment to the United Church of Christ and were very concerned that pastors be adequately trained to minister in local churches. A large portion of the income from the endowment is used to provide scholarships for seminarians belonging to the United Church of Christ„part of it administered by the seven seminaries of the United Church of Christ and part administered by each of the member organizations of the Council for Racial and Ethnic Ministries (COREM). Scholarships up to $10,000 are awarded annually. In large part, the legacy received from the Browns is a result of relationships built over many years by the Commission on Development and by local congregations of the United Church of Christ. Brown Scholarships are also awarded annually to a student of an overseas/global partner church studying abroad or in the U.S. and to overseas/global partner church members for continuing education leading toward professional ministry. The awards are given upon nomination by the Area Offices of our common Global Ministries /Wider Church Ministries and typically range from $3,000 to $6,000.
