LeaderStudies awards scholarships to exceptional Majority World Christian leaders pursuing doctoral-level education in theology and related disciplines.

These remarkable women and men now serve as the presidents, deans, and faculty of Christian institutions around the world. They have founded schools, pastored churches, established ministries, and written books and curricula used to teach many other believers who, in turn, impact millions for Christ.
