Massachusetts Scholarship for African Students in America


EDS is pleased to announce the continuation of the Massachusetts Scholarship for African Students in America (MSASA), a joint program of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts and EDS. 

The MSASA grant provides funds to an ordained or lay man or woman from Africa for two consecutive years of post-graduate theological education in the master of arts degree program at EDS.

Grant recipients have come from Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Studying at EDS—and through it, the Boston Theological Institute—students have been able to choose courses in their specific areas of interest and pursue them ecumenically. Men and women have taken interest in feminist studies and in God's mission throughout the world, and have contributed to Anglican, global, and ecumenical studies.

The MSASA Committee provides hospitality for students, inviting them to homes and to MSASA Committee and Wider Mission meetings. The Committee continually seeks ways for students to connect with both the parish and diocese.
