St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary (SVOTS) has announced the 2018 St. Matthias Merit Scholarship Essay Contest as part of the school’s ongoing efforts to help its students afford the costs of theological education and formation.

The essay contest is open to current seminarians only. The winning student will see $3,000 in award money added to his or her scholarship fund to help pay for tuition at SVOTS.

The $3,000 St. Matthias Merit Scholarship Essay Contest will be offered annually, thanks to the generous contributions of a family of anonymous donors. These donors also selected the topic of the essay contest. Each year, the essay topic will be based on an inspiring, real-life event.
