General

The G. Walter Hansen Fellowship supports three PhD students whose vocational interests and academic research focus on yielding more faithful and effective strategies for biblical-theological ministry, creating a global culture of collaboration among evangelical ministers of the Word.

The Hansen Fellowship awards unrestricted $10,000 fellowships to talented incoming and returning full-time TEDS PhD students who have shown a remarkable academic performance, exceptional engagement with the Center and its mission, and a extraordinary potential as a servant-leader in Christ’s kingdom. Exceptional Fellows may receive a one-year renewal of their Fellowships, making them HCTU Fellows for a total of two years (excluding TEDS department fellows and program scholars). All applications are due by January 15.
