Are you a local religious leader, non-profit executive, social service provider or community organizer interested in honing your skills around faith-based community development related to homelessness and affordable housing?
Three courses will be offered as a sequence in the winter, spring and summer of 2018, and have been developed to support and build the skills needed as faith-based communities engage some of our most difficult and complex social issues:
- STMPD 9701: Understanding Faith-Based Organizations & Community Development
- STMPD 9702: Surveying Faith-Based Responses to Homelessness
- STMPD 9703: Best Practices Workshop on Faith-Based Interventions to End Homelessness
To learn more about these courses, please visit the professional development series website.
To be eligible for this opportunity you must:
- have experience and interest in faith-based community development;
- demonstrate financial need; and
- not be currently enrolled in a degree program at Seattle University.
If you are awarded this scholarship, the tuition fees for all three courses will be waived (a total value of $990). If you receive a waiver, you must commit to participating in all three courses.
Deadline for submission is December 15, 2017.
If you have any questions, please contact: Hannah Hunthausen, Coordinator, Center for Religious Wisdom & World Affairs: firstname.lastname@example.org, (206) 296-6954.
