Leadership Development Fund

Candler School of Theology encourages student participation in professional conferences and meetings, as well as other learning experiences offered by other organizations.  The Leadership Development Fund offers financial support for these events during Fall and Spring semesters.  These Leadership Development funds are not available for any course for transfer or Candler credit, or for any Candler or Emory-sponsored international on or off-campus study opportunities.

Eligibility: An enrolled student may receive funding through this program for no more than one event per semester and a total of three events during her or his enrollment at Candler. Generally, no more than five students will be sponsored for any one event. The Registrar must verify that a student is in good academic standing (not on academic probation) at the time of application.

Award Amounts: Awards may be offered for reimbursement of up to 75% of the total cost of the event, including registration, travel, lodging and meals, with a maximum of $300 per award.  Extenuating circumstances and unusual financial need will be considered individually.  These decisions will be made by the Assistant Dean of Student Life and Spiritual Formation in consultation with other administrators and faculty.
