BUC Study Fund
BUC has created a fund to help support members who need financial assistance in order to pursue their church-related studies. Applications may be made to Church Council for support for:
- Period of Discernment
- Specific units of ministry formation studies
- studies in support of Lay Preacher Accreditation
- other units of study that contribute to a member’s ability to serve the church, both at BUC and more widely
We note that Presbytery has an education fund that may be able to cover tuition fees, and members are encouraged to apply to that fund in the first instance. BUC’s Study Fund may then be able to cover some or all of the additional related costs such as travel, accommodation, etc.
[Draft text, pending approval by Church Council, which endorsed the fund in principle and an initial application for its use at its February 2024 meeting, and is now inviting contributions.]
