Would you like to supportÂ an emerging scholar as that person makes vital connections with other Christian academics at Urbana: InterVarsity’s Student Missions ConferenceÂ (December 27-31)? In a pilot program, the Emerging Scholars Network (ESN) is offering 20 sponsorships to Urbana for emerging scholars. They include a chance to engage in smaller groups with believers inÂ theirÂ subject area, and $100 towards Urbana tuition.
We imagine this pilot program as a chance for Christians in higher ed to engage with others in their subject areas, talk about living missional lives in the academy, and create connections to a wider community of missional scholars.Â All early career Christian academics are welcome to apply, from undergraduate students to assistant professors.
As we pursue opportunities to connect Christian scholars at other conferences, we plan to use the Urbana pilot program as a springboard to crafting other networking and community building experiences as well. Would you consider supporting emerging scholars through a gift towards ESN sponsorships? Note: If you’re an emerging scholar and desire to participate, please register for Urbana before the June 30 rate increase andÂ applyÂ for the sponsorship!
AND yes, we’re also looking for more experienced academics willing to serve as facilitators during Urbana. So if that describes you, pleaseÂ email us here.
Thank-you to the ministry partners who provide the resources to enableÂ the Emerging Scholars Network to press intoÂ this crucial engagement ofÂ emerging Christian academics and professionals. If you have not already done such, we inviteÂ you to prayerfully consider becoming part of the support team through givingÂ at the close of our fiscal year (June 30).
