LWF Scholarship for 2025 -Notice and Application Link Published..



All the Bishops/Presidents of UELCI Constituent Member Churches


Dear Bishop/President/Moderator,


Greetings to you in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.


Hope you have received the communication from LWF regarding the New
Application Phase for LWF Scholarships for 2025. Although LWF has
sent the communication related to online registration, we, for
various practical reasons, will continue to follow the old system
until the applications are approved by the UELCI Scholarship
Committee. Once this is approved by the member churches and then by
the UELCI Scholarship Committee, we will go for the online procedure
of LWF.


路 Each member church is eligible to apply for 7 scholarships,
5 for regular and 2 for short-term scholarships. 5 Regular
scholarship applications for the period from 1 to 4 years and 2 short
term for maximum 1 year.


– 5 regular scholarships include Group scholarship. A group consisting
of 2 up to 10 persons pursuing the same field and level of training
together for similar or common areas of engagement, and at a
relatively lower cost.


– 2 Short-term scholarships which last up to 1 year provide church
workers with specific skills and apply to the immediate daily work of
the church/church related institutions. Short-term scholarships may
include a training, online course, workshop, seminar, or research
project related to leadership development, project management, gender
awareness, food security, etc. Kindly encourage your church workers
to make use of this short term scholarship.


路 The last date to receive the filled in application (attached
here) to UELCI is not later than 14th August 2024.


路 Kindly adhere to the joint LWF gender and youth quota if
more than one candidate is being proposed. This means that at least
40% of the proposed candidates must be female, and at least 20% must
be below the age of 30. These quotas will apply overall for all the
proposed candidates, as well as for each of the proposed areas of
study (Theology and Diakonia).


路 Kindly send by post one hard copy of the filled in
application form and soft copy through email id: [email protected]


路 Once it is approved by the UELCI Scholarship Committee (date
will be informed later) the uploading of the application through an
online process will start by each church/individual candidate.


Kindly remember these points and send the application form before the
prescribed date.


Thanking you,


With kind regards,


Yours sincerely,


Rev. Dr. A. Joshuva Peter

Executive Secretary, UELCI & LWF National Committee (I)
