Meet the Brehm Scholars

 

The Brehm Center scholars show exceptional promise to be leaders in church, academic, missions or arts related vocations. In 2007, through the initiative and generosity of William K. and Delores S. Brehm, scholarships were established in their name for Fuller Theological Seminary students enrolled in Worship, Theology, and the Arts concentrations. The three Brehm Scholarships are awarded to a Master of Arts student, a Master of Divinity student, and a PhD student.

 

The Master of Arts and Master of Divinity scholarships are currently available. Fuller's Student Financial Services (SFS) is currently taking applications. To learn more about the scholarships click here.  You will be redirected to the SFS website where you can download the Brehm Scholarship application form.
