Current Scholarship Recipients

SIM is proud to announce its new Becoming Beloved Community scholars for the 2020-2021 Academic Year who are each answering the call to leadership in a New Church for a New World.  We look forward to their companionship over the next three years and to the contributions they will each make to the life of the church. Their unique commitments to compassion and justice are the lifeblood of this organization and also of the Body of Christ.

They are joined by 15 other current outstanding SIM scholars across seven seminaries.
