Leadership for Life Bursary Fund
Purpose: To support graduate research in psychology/pastoral care that advances understanding of, and applies a new lens onto, what lies at the core of our historic global dilemmas (e.g., power imbalances; "borders" and dimensions of cultural, racial, and religious identity; human rights and inalienable Rights). The research will identify developmental issues that, in being avoided, have arrested our hopes for global harmony, and must now be "grown up."
The Candidate: You are presently enrolled in a Master’s or a Doctoral level of studies in psychology or pastoral care at a recognized college or university, and are progressing to the research phase of your program. You have completed at least 75% of your course work, have achieved excellence in your program standing, and you’ve honed your particular research question(s) in a way that integrates your personal sense of call, your advanced understanding of psychological and pastoral care principles, and global context.
Amount and Awarding of Bursary: The Bursary is funded through sales from my book, A Very Personal Leadership. Therefore, awarding of the Bursary will be consistent with funds received. The aim is to award an amount of at least $1000.00 per year. Granting of monies will coincide with the actual commencement of the student’s research process.
A copy of the book, A Very Personal Leadership, can be purchased through FriesenPress .
