New Academic and Mission Leader Development Scholarships

Please see below a note from the Territorial Programme Department regarding new scholarships available for Salvationists in 2014, including academic scholarships. If you (or someone you know) are interested in either of these, contact your Corps Officer for more info, or drop us an email (bcm@nzf.salvationarmy.org) and we’ll be happy to assist you in any way that we can.

At Congress, Territorial Leaders announced that $2 million was being put into a new Strategic Mission Fund (SMF). The minute has just been released and I’d like to draw your attention to the key features.
1. Most of the money is being allocated to starting new faith communities. This is not just new plants – if you have ideas for new congregations within your corps or centre, please talk to us.
2. New Academic Scholarships are replacing the old Unleashing Fund ones. These are now competitive, to be allocated to Salvationists who can demonstrate tertiary study with the clearest mission intent. Please think about people in your corps or centre who might qualify and encourage them to apply.
3. New Mission Leader Development Scholarships are being introduced. This is to support people already involved in leadership who would benefit from some form of development opportunity, such as attending a course or conference, site visits, internships, etc. Do you have leaders you would like to develop?
4. Please continue to apply to the division for your local mission initiatives.

To help you advertise the new scholarships, please find attached a flyer, plus the application forms that are designed to be self-explanatory. The easiest approach is probably to print some application forms and hand them to people who might be interested. Note that applications for both types of scholarship are required at DHQ by 15 February.
