Annual Meeting Student Scholarship Program

The ETS Executive Committee is pleased to announce the 2019 Annual Meeting Student Scholarship Program. This program is designed to help academically promising doctoral students who find participation in the Society economically prohibitive, or who come from a traditionally underrepresented group to get to know the Society, its functions, its leaders, and the role it plays in supporting conservative evangelical scholarship. The goal of the program is to encourage and support students, who might otherwise not participate in the Society, to appreciate the value of membership and the profitable part that it might play in their academic and ministry futures.

Scholarship recipients will receive a two-year benefit package including:

    Year One (2019)
  • Free Annual Meeting registration
  • Free Annual Meeting Banquet ticket (Free ticket for spouse if attending the meeting.)
  • Travel reimbursement (up to $800 total for eligible expenses: airfare, car rental, mileage reimbursement, and parking)
  • $200 food allowance
  • Free hotel accommodations at the annual meeting (four nights)
  • Luncheon with the Executive Committee and invited guests. (Recipient spouse is invited to luncheon if attending the meeting.)
  • Invitation to networking event with past scholarship recipients.
  • 1 year free ETS membership
  • Book vouchers and publications from scholarship sponsors

    Year Two (2020)
  • 1 year free ETS membership
  • Free Annual Meeting registration
  • Free Annual Meeting banquet ticket

    The ETS Annual Meeting Scholarship Program is open to currently enrolled Ph.D/Th.D./D.Phil. students working in biblical studies, theology or related fields. In addition to the educational requirement, students applying for the program should meet the following criteria:

    • The applicant should have either an economic need which renders him or her unable to participate in the Society or should be part of an underrepresented group within the Society. While not limited exclusively to these groups, the Society membership has traditionally been underrepresented in terms of female, African-American, and Hispanic scholars.
    • The Society’s purpose is to foster conservative biblical scholarship. Applicants should be able to demonstrate academic promise which indicates likely ability to participate as an active member of the Society.
    • Applicants should currently reside in the United States or Canada
    • Applicants must not be prior recipients of the scholarship.
    • Applicants must not have previously attended the ETS Annual Meeting. (The applicant may have attended a regional ETS meeting.)
    • Applicants must not be related to any member of the Executive Committee or the Scholarship Program Selection Committee. Currently this includes: David Dockery, Michael Kruger, Craig Keener, Gregg Allison, Scott Rae, Daniel Wallace, Sam Storms, R. Albert Mohler, Jr. and Michael Thigpen.
