Funds Available through the Education & Learning Committee in the United Reformed Church
These are funds available in addition to EM2 and EM3 allowances.
Continuing Studies Fund
This scholarship assistance is offered to help ministers who are working part-time for higher degrees or for professional development programmes. For further details see the accompanying Policy Document and Application Form. Please note the maximum awards, the closing date for applications, and that applications for this support have to be made via the Synod EM2/3 Officer.
Norman Goodall fund
This Fund currently stands at about £13,000, having been donated by Norman Goodall in 2001, to allow study travel grants, under the control of the International department, especially to the Bossey International Centre in Switzerland. It has not yet been used, and the most obvious use would be for sabbaticals and one-off overseas study events. All enquiries about use of this particular fund should be directed through the Synod Officer responsible for EM3 to the Secretary for World Church Relations.
