The endowment fund, The Rev. Drs. Eleanor and Jay Ebersole and Family BAP Fund, will provide annual income to underwrite student tuition, travel and accommodation expenses to participate in this 8-day program each summer. The donor’s preference is that the scholarship be awarded to current United Church of Christ pastor in the Southern Conference, within which Dr. Ebersole resides in retirement.
Building Abrahamic Partnerships is an interfaith community of learning for Jews, Christians and Muslims that provides a solid foundation in interfaith ministry and education. This year, it will be held from June 23 through June 30 on the Hartford Seminary campus.
