1st place: $500 • 2nd place: $250 • 3rd place: $175
Any Anglican student enrolled in a master’s degree program (MDiv, MA, or equivalent diploma; not ThM or other secondary degrees) in any seminary of the Anglican Communion or accredited ecumenical equivalent may submit an essay of 1,500 to 2,000 words. Any essay under 1,500 words or over 2,000 words will be disqualified.
Essays may address any topic within the classic disciplines of theology (Bible, history, systematics, moral theology, liturgy). We also welcome essays written to fulfill course requirements. We will give special consideration to essays that demonstrate a mastery of one or more of the registers of Christian wisdom and radiate a love of the communion of the Church in Jesus Christ, the Wisdom of God.
Students may send essays (in Word or RTF) to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than June 15, 2016.
Entries should include the student’s full name, postal and email addresses, and the name and address of the student’s school.
