Tyndale House Student Scholars Program

Tyndale House (TH) is a centre for fostering evangelical biblical research. In pursuit of its charitable objects “to advance the Evangelical Christian Religion… through promoting biblical scholarship and research” TH's Student Scholars Program seeks to encourage and disciple evangelicals considering serving in academia.

Tyndale House is seeking evangelical Christian students with a good knowledge of Hebrew, Greek, or other ancient language to contribute to world-class research projects being undertaken at Tyndale House, and receive training in academic research skills. Selected students will participate in the programme during university vacation under the leadership of Dr Peter Williams, Warden of Tyndale House.

The programme runs 17 July—25 August 2017. The student should be willing to commit to a minimum of four weeks (Mon-Fri). Attendance at the first two weeks is compulsory, after which dates are more flexible. Maximum possible attendance is preferable.

Prerequisite

Normally 15 months of Greek or Hebrew in university, with a good reading skill attained, though applications are accepted from candidates with comparable skill in another ancient language. You should be an undergraduate or someone due to graduate shortly at a UK university, studying Theology, Classics, or Middle-Eastern languages, or some other closely related discipline. Applications are welcome from those studying outside the UK. However applicants should be aware that there may be VISA restrictions upon their participation in the program. Tyndale House is not responsible for supporting a UK VISA to potential candidates.

Remuneration

Tyndale House will make a contribution towards living expenses based around the number of scheduled hours spent engaged contributing to research projects, with an estimated working week of 37 hours research time. This does not include tuition or other contact time from staff and faculty. Participants will be expected to source and pay for their own accommodation in Cambridge, but Tyndale House are willing to provide help in sourcing living arrangements where necessary.
