WINNIPEG, MB (August 18, 2009) – CBC Legacy Fund scholarships of $500 are now available to students affiliated with Evangelical Covenant churches within the Canada Conference.

The students must be “enrolled in theological, biblical or discipleship programs that equip men and women to live as disciples of Jesus Christ, through spiritual formation, biblical knowledge, Christian service, and intentional community.”

The awards are distributed on a “first come, first serve” basis. A limited number of awards have been reserved for the descendants of CBC alumni who reside in Canada or who are attending Canadian programs that meet the CBC Legacy Fund qualifications.

Applicants must be nominated for the award by a pastor or council member of an Evangelical Covenant Church within the Canadian Conference. If the CBC alumni descendant is not attending an Evangelical Covenant Church, the home church pastor may submit a nomination form.

The application deadline is November 30. For more information, click here.

This is the second year for the scholarships. Last year, 10 awards were made to students attending nine different programs, says Phil Wright, the conference director of discipleship initiatives.

The fund derives from a portion of the sale of the CBC campuses. “We use the interest gained from this self-perpetuating fund for these bursaries, as well as for supporting other discipleship initiatives such as our Camp Ministry Team, Life Together and other initiatives that are in development stages,” Wright says.
