THE Ecclesiastical Ministry Bursary Awards, which have helped hundreds of ministers to finance their extended study leave, are still available. Since 1987, Ecclesiastical’s centenary year, more than 1000 clerics have received awards for a range of extended-leave projects and plans to support their ministerial development. The awards are open to individual clergy in full-time appointments in the Anglican Churches in England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland, who have been ordained for at least ten years. Applications for 2017 close on 30 September 2016. Full terms and conditions, and application details are available at www.ecclesiastical.com/mba.
