The Alastair Haggart Bursary Fund awards a grant every year of up to £1500 to help fund a sabbatical or similar leave of absence for someone in authorized ministry. Such study leave should occur at a stage in the person’s life when the experience will significantly enhance his or her ministerial practice and development. The outcomes of the project should also be of benefit to the wider Church. Grants in recent years have funded studies of ‘pilgrimage’ and of ‘interim ministry’, and also a sabbatical in the Tantur Institute of Ecumenical Research. For an application form for 2018, please contact the Scottish Episcopal Institute’s Administrator, Denise Brunton: DeniseB@scotland.anglican.org . The deadline for the submission of applications is 31 January 2018.
