This is a great opportunity for Christians pursuing graduate education. The Harvey Fellows, an initiative of the Mustard Seed Foundation, provides annual stipends of $16,000 (renewable for up to 3 years!) for Christians pursuing graduate education in fields in which Christians are underrepresented. (Note: they include “research, teaching, and administration at premier colleges and universities” as one of these fields, so most ESN members will qualify.) The Harvey Fellows also target students in programs that are recognized as among the “top five” in their discipline, and you can either be in or applying to a graduate program.
The deadline for this year’s application is November 1. Also, if you have an old application sitting in your file cabinet, the Harvey Fellows now require you to submit an on-line application, so visit their website to start the process.
