Wittlinger Scholarships at Messiah College
A Scholarship Opportunity for Outstanding Messiah College Students for 2013/2014
The Wittlinger Scholarship Program is designed to provide opportunities for Messiah College students to do research in an area relating to one of the three theological traditions (Anabaptist, Pietist, and Wesleyan) that underpin the Brethren in Christ Church to which Messiah College is related. One scholarship will be awarded in each area—Anabaptist, Pietist, and Wesleyan—for a maximum of three scholarships for the 2013/2014 academic year.
Successful Wittlinger Scholars will register for an independent study with a full-time Messiah College faculty member. The study will be conducted during the fall of their senior year and will result in a major research paper, minimally 25 pages, and a public presentation regarding their research. Upon completion of the independent study and presentation of the findings, each scholar will receive a scholarship of $2,000. This research program carries with it up to $1,000 for research expenses.
