All students admitted into the Flourishing Fellows Program will receive a $3,000 scholarship, renewable for up to four years.
The Center for Faith and Culture is committed to reinvigorating student spiritual exploration at William Jewell College. In partnership with the College Chaplain, the Center created a new Student Flourishing Fellows Program.
The Center’s goal for this new Fellows Program is to challenge students to examine what a life of flourishing might look like in relationship to their major, their profession and their life’s vocation. The program seeks to answer these questions: What claim does Jesus Christ make on my life? How can I respectfully and honestly dialogue with people of other faiths and traditions in a civil fashion? What can I learn from other Christians and even Interfaith traditions that will strengthen my own Christian faith?
The Student Flourishing Fellows Program will include small groups, study groups, service-learning, possible internships and partnerships with local congregations, and leading ministries including student-led worship opportunities. While these Fellowships are available for those considering ministry as a vocation, they are specifically designed for students who take their faith seriously, and who desire to integrate a life of faith into their life’s work, calling and career. All Fellows will pursue majors outside of the Center for Faith and Culture, but all Fellows will be expected to minor in our new Faith and Culture minor.
