Sponsored by the Kern Family Foundation, the Oikonomia Fellowship Program is building a cohort of evangelical seminary professors to bridge the sacred-secular divide, promoting sound anthropology and economic understanding in U.S. seminaries and churches. Beginning with attendance at Acton University, which will take place June 20-23 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, recipients of this prestigious award are offered unique resources and opportunities for use in their classrooms and scholarly advancement.
In 2017, 75 fellows will attend Acton University, enjoying four days of dynamic lectures, engaging discussion, leveraged networking and trademark hospitality. The fellowship includes lodging at the downtown Amway Grand Plaza Hotel, a travel stipend, meals and conference fees for the duration of the conference as well as an honorarium.
There is no separate application form for a fellowship to attend Acton University. Returning and new fellowship candidates should visit university.acton.org and complete the registration/application form by May 15, 2017. A limited number of fellowships are available, and fellowship recipients are asked to commit to attend the entire program as a condition of funding.
