If you missed the early deadline to register for Urbana, do not despair! You can still apply for ESN’s Urbana Sponsorship.
In a program through Urbana Exhibitors, the Emerging Scholars Network (ESN) is offering 20 $100 sponsorships to Urbana for Emerging Scholars. The program includes a chance to briefly connect with members of the Emerging Scholars Network before, during, and after Urbana.
We imagine this pilot program as a chance for Christians in higher ed to engage with others in their broad subject areas, talk about living missional lives in the academy, create connections to a wider community of missional scholars, and richly draw from Urbana programming (see http://ivgfm.org/urbana, https://www.facebook.com/UrbanaGFM, http://blog.emergingscholars.org/tag/urbana). 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.
You can find the general Urbana Sponsorship page here for more information and other opportunities (you can apply for more than one sponsorship): https://urbana.org/student-sponsorship-program
