The Trinity Union Fellows Program


The Trinity Union Fellows Program brings International students from China and India to Union Theological Seminary for one year of academic training for the Masters of Sacred Theology degree (S.T.M). The Fellows program accepts a cohort of up to six students who are funded by a generous grant from Trinity Church Wall Street. The Fellowship provides full tuition, housing, travel reimbursement, and a generous stipend. The program also includes individualized language support.

The goal of the Trinity Union Fellows Program at Union Theological Seminary is to prepare global faith leaders to educate their communities and churches. For nearly two hundred years, Union has prepared leaders for work in the church and the academy. Across cultural and faith boundaries this work continues to grow exponentially.
