Kern Scholar Program

The Kern Scholar Program is designed for younger men and women who are committed to serving God in local congregations after completing a Master of Divinity degree. The program fully funds tuition for the three-year program for at least seven new students per year.

Those who are selected to be Kern Scholars will join a learning community in which students progress together toward their academic and ministry goals. They take selected classes together and come together for social events, retreats, and other activities. The program is sponsored by the Kern Family Foundation of Waukesha, Wisconsin.
