Doctoral Scholarships

Ridley – Raggatt Doctoral Scholarship for an Emerging Female Academic

Ridley College is an enthusiastic supporter of evangelical women in Academia, with an agenda to recruit, equip and mentor them. A donation for a scholarship from the Raggatt family provides a unique opportunity for an emerging female scholar.

The Ridley-Raggatt Doctoral Scholarship is designed to nurture an emerging female scholar who will become a leader in theological education, Christian mission and ministry, and Christian thought-leadership.

The scholarship entails $20,000 annually for three years which can be taken as either a stipend or as credit towards course fees.

The successful applicant will be a female Australian resident, based in Melbourne, full-time or part-time, satisfy enrolment requirements for a doctoral degree, normally work 6 hrs per week as a college tutor, agree to be mentored by a Ridley faculty member, and contribute to the academic life of the college. Commencement can be negotiated.

The scholarship will be awarded on merit to a gifted and godly woman who combines academic acumen with a commitment to Christian service.
