The Augustine Institute in Denver,Colo., is awarding three full-tuition scholarships to students who are beginning graduate Theology studies at the Institute in August 2014, according to a press release.
The three students who are selected to receive the scholarships will be named John Paul II Scholars and will be trained “to make a significant and lasting contribution on the new evangelization.”
The Institute reports:
The John Paul II Scholars must be full-time graduate students at the Augustine Institute campus in Denver, Colorado. Successful candidates will demonstrate a clear Catholic identity, aptitude for theological studies, leadership potential, and the ability to make an immediate contribution to the Institute’s apostolic internship program.
To be considered for the John Paul II Scholars program, candidates must complete an application to the Graduate School of the Augustine Institute, submit an additional letter of recommendation that testifies to the candidate’s Catholic identity and leadership potential, and write an essay of approximately 1,000 words in answer to the question “What are the essential qualities of a leader in the New Evangelization?”
Finalists will be interviewed, by telephone or videophone, by the John Paul II Scholars committee of the Augustine Institute…
