The mandate of this Sub-Committee is to provide recommendations to the Joint Grants Committee on awarding academic awards and scholarships. The Sub-Committee provides expertise and insight about the suitability of applicants for awards. The Joint Grants Committee oversees appropriate recognition of awardees and may request the assistance of the Sub-Committee in those celebrations.
We are seeking two people to join the Sub-Committee who:
- have expert knowledge of theological education and academic excellence
- have a postgraduate education
- have broad knowledge of The United Church of Canada
The Sub-Committee meets through teleconference. To prepare for each meeting, members are expected to thoroughly review and evaluate each application, bringing their professional expertise, objectivity, and thoughtful consideration to all deliberations. This time commitment is anticipated to be between 10 and 15 hours for each annual granting cycle. The next meeting will occur by conference call in the second week of April.
