Five Ind. theology schools share in Lilly grant
Five Indiana theology schools are among 51 nationwide that have been awarded a total of more than $12 million by the Lilly Endowment to study economic issues facing future ministers.
The Indianapolis-based endowment announced this week the 51 schools include Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary in Elkhart, the Anderson University School of Theology, Fort Wayne’s Concordia Theological Seminary and Bethany Theological Seminary and the Earlham School of Religion, both in Richmond. Each school will receive about $250,000.
The endowment began its initiative last year with an experimental pilot. Grants were given to 16 theological schools to develop programs to improve the economic well-being of their students and graduates.
The endowment says recent research shows student educational debt in excess of $30,000 is not uncommon for seminary graduates.
