Three students have been awarded Samuel and Sarah Wait Graduate Fellowships in Theology and Ministry, the most prestigious merit-based scholarships offered by Wake Forest University Divinity School.
The 2003-2004 recipients of the Wait Fellowships include Lynn Harper, Sarah Honeycutt and Katharine Humphrey Martin.
Harper is a 2002 graduate of Southeast Missouri State University. She is a member of First Baptist Church of Cape Girardeau, Mo.
Honeycutt is a 2001 graduate of Mars Hill College. She is a member of First
Baptist Church of Rutherfordton.
Martin is a 1998 graduate of Salem College and a 1999 graduate of Wake Forest. She is a member of Home Moravian Church in Winston-Salem.
Established in 1999, the Divinity School’s inaugural year, the Samuel and Sarah Wait Graduate Fellowships in Theology and Ministry are named in honor of the first president of Wake Forest and his wife.
The fellowships cover the entire cost of tuition and fees for study at the Divinity School. They are renewable for up to three years, which is the length of the full-time master of divinity program. The school’s faculty selects recipients from a field of students nominated for their academic excellence and exceptional promise for Christian ministry.
The three fellowship recipients are members of this year’s entering Divinity School class, a group comprised of 38 students from a variety of denominational backgrounds. The Divinity School has a total of 81 students enrolled.
The school’s mission is to educate students for Christian ministry by preparing them for parish ministry and vocations in related fields. The school is Christian by tradition, ecumenical in outlook and Baptist in heritage.
