Winifred Kiek Scholarship Trust

Applications for the 2018 year are now available.

Awarded annually and now in its 52 year, the Winifred Kiek Scholarship is named in honour of the first woman ordained in Australia in the (then) Congregational Church. It is offered in rotation to women from countries of the Pacific Island Nations, member countries of the Asian Church Women’s Conference and in 2018, Australia.

The Scholarship is offered to Christian women aged 25 or over and is to help the recipient to undertake theological studies, Bible studies, religious leadership training or to attend a conference or seminar during 2018. Specific projects providing training for women will be considered. A separate application form will be required for such projects.
