The Alastair Haggart Bursary Fund

The Bursary is awarded annually in memory of Bishop Haggart, Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church (1977-85). It aims to help finance sabbaticals or other similar leave of absence on the part of full-time ministers at a stage in the person’s life when such an experience will significantly enhance his or her development. The outcomes of the project should also be of benefit to the wider Church. To apply to the fund, please access the form here. Applications for the 2024 award are invited, the closing date is 22 January 2024.
