Theological Education Fund for Women Scholarships

The World Alliance of Reformed Churches – WARC

The WARC Scholarships help women prepare for ordination.

The Theological Education Scholarship Fund for Women in the South (French and Spanish version) was established in 2001 and has proven to be a very effective way to encourage member churches to accept women in the ordained ministry.
The main purpose of the scholarship fund is to increase the number of women in the ordained ministry and to enable women from a wide network of Reformed churches in the South to build their capacity for effective partnership in God’s mission.
The Theological Education Scholarship Fund for Women in the South provides for first degree or diploma studies which are done at a seminary or college in the home country or region of scholarship awardees. From 2002-2006, forty-two women from Argentina, Brazil, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Guyana, India, Kenya, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nigeria, the Republic of Congo, Rwanda, South Africa, Togo, Tuvalu, Uganda and Venezuela have received awards from the fund and are being prepared for the ordained ministry.
