“As I enter the third year of my master’s degree and prepare for a doctoral degree, I am increasingly aware that this field has been dominated by men’s perspectives for centuries. Receiving this award will affirm the value of my work as a woman and will encourage me to continue to bring my whole self to this work boldly.” --AMMS Applicant
Every year the Alvera Mickelsen Memorial Scholarship (AMMS) provides financial assistance to women who are pursuing a master’s degree in a ministry field related to preaching, communications, writing, youth ministry, pastoral, or nonprofit work.
Alvera Mickelsen, a CBE founder and its first board chair, was a prophetic leader and gracious ambassador of biblical equality for women. The scholarship is made possible through the generosity of Alvera’s family and your gifts. Since the fund was established, we have been able to award eight scholarships over the past three years.
AMMS has become one of CBE’s most popular programs and we need your help to keep it strong for many years to come by building up the fund with $30,000.
Statistics prove that educating and empowering women leads to human flourishing for the entire community. If more women are empowered to exercise their gifts as God intends, imagine what it would do for the church and the world.
Join us in affirming women’s leadership and their call to ministry. Your support makes the Alvera Mickelsen Memorial Scholarships possible!
