EQB to Help Seminarians

Adapted from a University of the South announcement

The University of the South’s School of Theology has launched a new seminary program, EQB Fellowship, to address seminarians’ debt. The university’s motto, Ecce Quam Bonum (“How good it is”), is shortened from “How good it is when brothers and sisters dwell together in unity” (Ps. 133).

EQB Fellowship program will create a new model of sustainable living and learning in residential community for 12 seminarians. Students will receive full scholarships, including living expenses, which will allow them to graduate debt-free and provide a rich environment for leadership formation. Students will live in EQB House on the University of the South’s campus.

Four students will be admitted to the program each year, beginning in the 2015-16 academic year, with a maximum of 12 overall. These 12 students will be selected for their commitment to change-the-world ventures for the Church of the 21st century.

An eligible student will:

  • be a single adult age 30 or younger
  • appreciate the transformational power of living in community
  • seek a structured experiential context for further discernment
  • be an active participant in ministry
  • show a proven track record of leadership
  • take risks and collaborate with others

The School of Theology invites those interested in the program to apply through its regular channels. Students who have been accepted by the admissions office may apply for the EQB Fellowship.

Benefactors of for this program include the Lilly Endowment, the Society for the Increase of the Ministry, the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation, St. George’s Church in Nashville, and the William R. Kenan, Jr., Charitable Trust.
