50% Tuition-Fee Theology Scholarship for current pastors

Application and policy form

Company of 1000 Study Reserve Fund

The 50% Tuition-Fee Theology Scholarship is administered as part of the Mennonite Church Canada Study Reserve Fund.  It is established to support the training of pastors currently serving the congregations of Mennonite Church Canada. Money from the fund is used to provide 50 per cent of tuition fees for pastors who are studying part time at approved Mennonite Church Canada schools (including online courses). Several hundred annual contributors, known as “The Company of 1000,” donate to the Study Reserve Fund, which is administered by the Church Leadership Ministers of the five regional Mennonite Churches and in consultation with the Executive Minister of Mennonite Church Canada.

You can view a list of approved schools and the Company of 1000 Study Reserve Fund Guidelines at: https://www.mennonitechurch.ca/company-of-1000.
