I don’t know when this was announced, but I just found out that the ETS Executive Committee has made a scholarship available for students who want to attend the annual meeting in Milkwaukee this year.
The Annual Meeting Student Scholarship is “designed to help academically promising students who find participation in the Society economically prohibitive, or who come from a traditionally underrepresented group.”
Even more encouraging is that later, under the eligibility requirements, it says:
The applicant should have either an economic need which renders them unable to participate in the Society or should be part of an underrepresented group within the Society. While not exclusively limited to these groups, the Society membership has traditionally been underrepresented in terms of female, African-American, and Hispanic populations.
The only downside is that applicants have to live within a 10-hour drive of Milwaukee (although hopefully they’ll waive this if the student pays for their own flight).
The deadline is August 31 and students have to be nominated by a full or associate member, so hurry up and contact your favorite theology professor and have them nominate you.
