Tamisha Tyler Awarded Forum for Theological Exploration (FTE) Doctoral Fellowship

Fuller is thrilled to announce Tamisha Tyler has been selected to receive a 2020 Doctoral Fellowship from the Forum for Theological Exploration (FTE).

As part of the fellowship award, Fellows will have the opportunity to attend the 2020 FTE Forum for Theological Educators, held November 18-20, in Boston, Massachusetts, prior to the annual meetings of the American Academy of Religion and Society of Biblical Literature. The Forum will provide opportunities for networking, professional development, vocational exploration and mentoring. Each Fellow will receive a living stipend up to $25,000 to help further their studies beyond the coursework stage.

“We received a record number of applications making this year’s selection process the most competitive year-to-date,” said Dr. Patrick B. Reyes, FTE senior director of learning design. “The work being done by each Fellow in the 2020 class is exactly what we need during these uncertain times. Their collective projects honor their communities of accountability and cast a vision for an academy that cares deeply about the world we all hope to inhabit.”

In addition to its fellowships for dissertation stage doctoral students, FTE provides professional development opportunities for PhD and ThD students in the first two years of their studies. FTE developed these doctoral initiatives to help accelerate the completion of doctoral degrees among students of color and to foster diversity across the academy in North America.

Join us in congratulating Tamisha for this incredible accomplishment!
