Austin Seminary announced eight recipients of merit scholarships for the entering class of 2012. These scholarships and fellowships are awarded to applicants admitted to the Master of Divinity degree program by the faculty of Austin Seminary.
The Jean Brown Fellowship was awarded to Mike Chaddick of Santa Ana, California, John Harrison of Atlanta, Georgia, Erica Knisley of Austin, Texas, and Kathy Lee of New Orleans, Louisiana. These four Fellows were selected for their demonstrated interest in and a strong promise vocationally for leadership in the church, exceptional academic achievement, and leadership ability.
The Jean Brown Fellowship provides each recipient full tuition, as well as a stipend for on-campus housing.
Four incoming students were awarded the Jean Brown Scholarship and the James M. Memorial O’Leary Scholarship; both scholarships provide full tuition coverage. This year’s Jean Brown Scholarship recipients are Kris Brown of Austin, Texas, Sarah Chancellor of Jenks, Oklahoma, and Michele Goff of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Sarah Lancaster from Austin, Texas, was awarded the James O’Leary Scholarship.
The fellowships and scholarships awarded to students are made possible through the support and generosity of donors. Austin Seminary currently has six endowed merit fellowships.
“It is an incredible honor to be a recipient of the Jean Brown Fellowship. I am very humbled by the opportunity to be a part of the Austin Seminary community and to grow in wisdom and the capacity to serve the kingdom of God in any way possible,” Kathy Lee said.
