Introducing the Conway Holy Land Travel Bursary

February 08, 2011
Applications are now being accepted for the new Conway Holy Land Travel Bursary

Dr. John Conway has generously endowed an annual $5000 bursary for research and travel to the Holy Land within the calendar year of the award, for a returning Regent College student. The bursary is intended to foster inter-religious dialogue and understanding of the region's past and present and will be awarded to students interested in promoting a more peaceable and just future for this deeply troubled part of our world. Preferential attention will be given to the study and research of Christian-Jewish relations or Christian-Muslim relations. The successful applicant is encouraged to establish Holy Land contacts with churches or other agencies engaged in such ecumenical encounters (see sample itinerary below). Students receiving the award will be expected to return to the college for at least one regular term (Fall or Winter). $4000 of the bursary will be applied to the travel, with the remaining $1000 being applied to Regent on-campus tuition following the trip. Upon returning, the recipient will be expected to prepare a written report to the bursary committee and to give a public account of their travels to the larger Regent Community.

Eligibility: Admitted Regent College students who will be returning to study on-campus at Regent for at least the Fall or Winter term immediately following their travels. Preference will be given to students with a demonstrated interest in Biblical Studies or Church History.

Application Submission Deadline: March 9, 2012.

Applications are to be submitted to Regent College, c/o Academic Dean's Office, 5800 University Boulevard, Vancouver, BC Canada, V6T 2E4
