$200,000 Grant to BTSR
Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond was award a $200,000 grant by the Charles B. Keesee Educational Fund, Inc in December. The grant is given to fund two proposals for BTSR. Half of the grant will go to fund scholarships to reduce the costs of the Mission Immersion Experience trips for qualifying students from Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. The other half of the money will go to the development of cutting edge, high quality, short term hybrid courses for our August, January, and May terms that involve both classroom and online methods and that incorporate the best use of technology and classroom pedagogy. The money will be used for training faculty, developing classes, and implementing those new classes by January 2015 at the latest. BTSR is delighted to have received this grant so that it can continue to offer the best in theological education in the 21st century!
