COLUMBIA, S.C – Cherry Hill Seminary is now accepting applications for Spring 2014 semester course scholarships.
Thanks to the generosity of donors who gave nearly $4,300 during a fall drive, the “Bow Tie Campaign,” Cherry Hill Seminary will award:
1 master’s class to each of 2 different students
1 certificate class to each of 2 different students
1 Rhizomes package of 5 classes to 1 student or group
(plus, 1 full Pagan Life Academy series to a previously-selected recipient.)
Applicants for a master’s or certificate class scholarship must be existing CHS students who have taken a class in the past 18 months. Applicants for the Rhizomes package may be new to CHS, and may be an individual, or a group, e.g., a CUUPS group or ADF grove. A Rhizomes package may be awarded to either an individual or to a group. If the group applies, then the same individual need not attend each of the 5 four-week classes. The Rhizomes course series will be staggered throughout 2014.
Academic Dean Wendy Griffin, Ph.D., noted that the Rhizomes group of four-week courses was designed specifically to strengthen Pagan communities and leadership skills. “This is a marvelous opportunity for a person or group who have been wishing they could try a CHS course,” said Griffin.
Deadline for applications is midnight (Pacific Time) on Friday, January 3, 2014. Notifications will go out by Friday, January 10, 2014.
