Hastings scholarship

The school of theology and religious studies has launched an appeal to establish a scholarship for research students from Africa. The Adrian Hastings Africa Scholarship will commemorate the late Emeritus Professor of Theology and renowned historian of the church in Africa (pictured left), and support some of the many African applicants unable to take up places in the school through lack of funding.

The Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir Alan Wilson, who joins Archbishops Desmond Tutu and George Carey, the Honourable Peter Jay and others as patrons of the project, said: "This scholarship not only addresses an immediate educational need, but contributes to the University’s long-term commitment to creative engagement with the African continent".

The appeal was launched at Professor Hastings’s memorial service and 15,000 has already been raised. The School plans to admit the first Adrian Hastings Scholar next autumn.
