What is a CYM scholarship?

We are in touch with a number of churches across the UK who are seeking to employ people in their ministry. They have paid jobs on offer, and are willing to fund a BA or Masters degree. This is a really attractive offer to secure a 3 year employment package. It may mean moving to a new area, and students may utilise a government maintenance loan to support them.  Please note these opportunities are available for those with a right to work in the United Kingdom.

Our scholarship form:

This form gives us some information like your current location, whether you’d like to move to somewhere new, an overview of where our opportunities are located, and asks a little information about your faith journey so far.
