HELM provides financial assistance to graduate theological students through two main funds:
WILLIAM GILBERT AND FLORENCE LEONARD JONES SCHOLARSHIP
The William Gilbert and Florence Leonard Jones scholarship is intended for members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) working towards a Ph.D. in religion, who are also currently ordained or preparing for ordination in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), and who intend to provide leadership to a congregation or other agency of the church.
ANN E. DICKERSON SCHOLARSHIP
The Dickerson Scholarship Program honors Ann E. Dickerson, who was elected Vice-Moderator of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in August 1975. A member of the faculty of Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee, she died in October 1975, shortly after receiving her Ph.D. from the University of Illinois. The Dickerson scholarship is awarded to female members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) pursuing a Ph.D. in religion.
