The Center for Reconciliation has announced that Jarred White, M.Div. ’16, and Brett Stuvland, M.Div. ’16, have been named 2015-16 World Vision Justice Fellows. The World Vision Justice Fellowship provides a $2,000 scholarship, mentorship, and funding to complete a small-scale project that engages the wider Duke University community in a contemporary justice issue of global concern.
Both White and Stuvland are interested in the theological groundings of the Creator and how they can inform practical environmental justice efforts along racial and gender lines. As fellows, they will complete independent research projects under the mentorship of Professor Luke Bretherton.
“The Center for Reconciliation is thrilled to partner with World Vision in creating opportunities for Divinity School students to bridge theology and practice in the pursuit of justice,” said Christena Cleveland, director of the center. “We believe that Jarred and Brett’s projects will significantly contribute to the theological discourse at Duke Divinity School, and we look forward to learning alongside them.”
Applications for the 2016-17 fellowship will be available in the spring of 2016.
