Just received this news from Langham Colleagues – worth spreading the news far and wide, as this is one worthy way of recognising and celebrating the extraordinary legacy of Uncle John.
Langham Partnership are pleased to announce the creation of the John Stott PhD Scholarship in Biblical Preaching. Named in honour of the founder of Langham Partnership, John Stott, the award is designed to promote research and cutting-edge thinking in biblical exposition and preaching. This award will be for study on a PhD course starting in September / October 2012, and will be for up to three years of full-time study, or six years of part-time study. The scholarship will be for those undertaking research in the area of Homiletics, Biblical Interpretation with a view to Preaching, or a Missiological or Historical topic with a strong focus on Preaching. The first candidate is likely to be accepted on a PhD programme in the UK or Europe. The scholarship will cover fees on the PhD course, and a contribution towards accommodation during the period of study. The award is only open to applicants from the Majority (Developing) World, and applicants must be highly commended by a Christian institution or organisation in the Majority (Developing) World.
Langham Partnership are interested in receiving applications from experienced preachers who already have a recognised postgraduate Masters degree in a related field (eg Biblical Studies, Practical / Pastoral Theology, Mission / Church History, Christian Communication), and some experience of teaching homiletics. If you would like to receive further information, or apply for this award, please send a curriculum vitae including details of relevant academic qualifications, and a statement of your area of research interest, to gaynor.harvey[at]langhampartnership.org
The closing date for the submission of full applications is 30 November 2011.
