CTNS Graduate Student Fellowship

You are invited to contribute to a Student Fellowship Fund that we began in Fall 2003.

CTNS teaching programs are carried out primarily at the Graduate Theological Union (GTU) in Berkeley, California, a consortium of nine Protestant and Catholic seminaries with a doctoral program in areas such as theology and ethics, and a cluster of affiliated centers such as CTNS. Here, CTNS offers courses at the doctoral and seminary levels in order to provide future clergy and university or seminary faculty with a complex understanding of this important interdisciplinary work. Robert John Russell serves as both the Founder and Director of CTNS and as Professor of Theology and Science in Residence at the GTU. He and other CTNS-related GTU faculty regularly work with a variety of doctoral and M.A. students as well as seminary students drawn from all nine member schools of the GTU consortium. Many of our former doctoral students have become tenured in seminaries and universities nationally.

Each year a growing number of students seek admission to the GTU doctoral program with a particular commitment to studying theology and science. However, to compete with other campuses for top graduate students we need to be able to offer financial support packages that allow our students to concentrate on their studies and also provide funds for their research projects during the three to six years they spend working towards their Ph.D. degree.

Our initial goal is to raise $75,000 towards an endowed Graduate Student Fellowship, and we are pleased to announce that $26,000 has already been raised. An annual Student Fellowship would then be awarded competitively on the basis of the student's proven academic ability, with funds drawn from the financial earnings of the endowment.
