Iona George Fund offers scholarship, research opportunity

Mar 22, 2022

The Iona George Fund for Scholarship in Early Church History at Waynesburg has been established through a generous donation, with the overarching goal of developing, over the years, a library of scholarly research related to improving understanding of the first 400 years of the Christian church.

The fund will provide an annual scholarship that encourages and inspires a student at Waynesburg University to study and write about the early history of the Christian church. The scholarship will cover tuition over a 12-month period for a student in return for their research.

Undergraduates of at least junior year rank as well as graduate students, including graduate assistants, may apply.

Candidates must submit a research proposal for review and consideration. The scholarship recipient will be mentored by a member of the selection committee, who will also help in the development and review of the research paper.

Applications for the inaugural scholarship are currently being accepted. For more information, please contact Josh Sumpter, Instructor of Biblical and Ministry Studies and University Chaplain at or (724) 852-7717.
