Generous donors have made gifts to support the education, continued learning and scholarship of United Church ministers – ordained and diaconal – and ministry students. They have also established trusts to recognize excellence in teaching and theological scholarship.
The United Church of Canada Foundation offers various academic award opportunities. Leaders can be awarded scholarships such as the Davidson Award and the McGeachy Senior Scholarship. Other trusts, like the W. Norman McLeod Scholarship and the Clifford Elliott Rural Ministry Award, provide monies to support theological education.
