Pitts Scholars Program 2021-22

Pitts Theology Library is excited to announce a renewed Pitts Scholars Program for the 2021–2022 academic year! We invite students interested in exploring theological vocation outside of traditional ecclesial and academic contexts to apply. 

In this program, students will develop skills relevant to their vocational and theological education as they discern the role of libraries in communities. Each scholar will apply their experiences and knowledge to a project that combines their ongoing theological training with skills that serve ecclesial, academic, and community audiences.  

Scholars will work with library mentors and program organizers on a project of their choosing that aligns with their interests. The program runs through the academic year, and in some cases may extend into the following summer or fall. Students will work with their mentors to outline project goals and create a schedule that works with their other obligations. Cohorts will meet twice a semester with the program organizers to discuss the interconnections between their projects and the role of libraries in theological education. Meeting dates will be set once the cohort is selected.  

Library staff begin reviewing applications on June 1, 2021. We will begin notifying scholars of their acceptance on August 1, 2021.
