This is the third year Diakonos Solutions is offering scholarships. Read what previous scholarship recipients said about the impact of receiving the scholarship.
“Diakonos Solutions was a gift I didn’t know I needed until I received it. As a woman of color in a Doctor of Ministry program I was aware of the financial commitment I was making to pursue higher education, but little did I know that the scholarship limitations would be so great. Being a recipient of this scholarship relieved some of the financial stress and allowed me to not take on additional side hustles to help pay for books and tuition. Applying for this scholarship helped me to remember my pursuit of this dream and that I cannot do this alone–we need each other.”
“There are very few scholarships for those pursuing their Doctor of Ministry, much less for women who are in ministry, so this scholarship was an absolute blessing from God. It not only eased the financial burden of pursuing additional education, but it served as a reminder that there are people out there offering their support and encouragement. This scholarship provided a sign that God has indeed called me (and so many other women) to this work of ministry and continuing education–it is my prayer that others will know they are being supported and encouraged on their journeys as well.”
“I was so encouraged to receive financial support from Diakonos Solutions. As a female DMin student and an international student, there are not a lot of options available to me for scholarships and grants. Covid made it impossible for me to travel for in-person classes, and there is only one other woman in my cohort, so I felt quite alone in my studies. Knowing that a group of people at Diakonos not only took the time to read my plan of study but are enthusiastic about its value and want to support me financially as I pursue it is a huge boost in confidence–and makes me feel I have a broader community of support. I’m so grateful!”
