The Center for Religious Wisdom & World Affairs announces scholarship opportunities for its 2018 Professional Development Series

November 3, 2017

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?

The Center for Religious Wisdom & World Affairs is pleased to offer a select number of needs-based tuition waivers for its 2018 professional development series.

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.
