NBTS SCHOLARSHIP ESSAY

As part of NBTS's continued mission to educate persons and strengthen communities for transformational, public ministries in church and society, we are proud to offer scholarships. In order for the scholarship committee to evaluate every student applying for scholarships fairly, students must submit a reflective essay.

Submit your essay on a separate sheet of paper with your full name, NBTS Student ID number and your program of study in the top right hand corner. In this short essay, synthesize and critically reflect on your learning in your program of study, and how you will incorporate your learning into your professional practice. Limit your reflective essay to 500-700 words (2 - 4 pages).

Your reflective essay should address the following:

  1. What is your contribution to this community of learning?
  2. What is your community involvement, both in your church and outside the walls of your church community?
  3. What you have learned in your program of study that you will be able to use in your practice as a leader?
  4. How will a scholarship help you in the pursuit of your calling?
  5. How has your study at NBTS enhanced your understanding and your work in global contexts?
