One Year in Mission and Service

Scholarship Application

The One Year in Mission and Service scholarship is funded by the Trans-European Division (TED) of Seventh-Day Adventists. Depending on where you are from, your Union may also contribute to this scholarship.

The scholarship exists to support students who enrol in the One Year in Mission and Service programme at Newbold and who commit to a mission project approved by the TED following their semester on campus. To be eligible to receive the scholarship, you will agree to undertake a mission project in your second semester with one of the programme partners:

  • ADRA Europe
  • Adventist Volunteer Service

What the scholarship covers

The scholarship covers 100% of the fully-inclusive (tuition fees, shared accommodation and meal plan) programme fee for the semester on-campus.

No Newbold fees apply for the second semester, however, there may be costs associated with your chosen mission project, and these will be arranged between yourself and the organisation managing your project.

The Year in Mission and Service Scholarship is drawn from a pool of limited annual funds, and awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to eligible applicants.

Who can apply?

This scholarship is open to new full-time students enrolled in Newbold’s Year in Mission and Service, who are aged 18-30. Applicants must be from within the geographic area of the TED.

You will need to demonstrate proof of attendance and engagement with the Year in Mission and Service programme, including class attendance and participation in voluntary work, workshops and seminars. As such, the scholarships are usually distributed towards the end of the semester. If you do not meet these terms you will forfeit your scholarship and become responsible for payment of the full programme fee.


Programme deposit

Students accepted into the One Year in Mission and Service programme will be required to pay a £200 deposit within one month of their offer, which will also be used as a room deposit. The deposit is refundable at the end of the semester, subject to deductions.

*The deposit will not be refundable if the student withdraws his application within less than a month of the beginning of the programme.
