The Natalie Gulbrandsen Ministerial Scholarship Fund for International Studies has been established to provide opportunities for ministers and candidates for ministry to engage in meaningful ways in a developing country for academic, interfaith or social justice purposes.
The fund has been created to honor the work of Natalie Gulbrandsen who made enormous contributions to the life of the Unitarian Universalist Association and its presence in international, interfaith and cross-cultural relationships. Ministers and candidates who are interested in broadening their liberal religious knowledge and understandings, and in strengthening their international sympathies, by immersing themselves in or studying in a developing country are encouraged to apply. Application and scholarship guidelines can be found at: http://www.uua.org/giving/awardsscholarships/89676.shtml.
