The purpose of the Balázs Scholars Program is to invite and support a Transylvanian or other international Unitarian minister for an academic year of study at Starr King School for the Ministry to enhance ministerial skills and religious leadership and to both broaden and deepen the minister’s calling to serve in a changing and global world. The Balázs Scholars Program has brought a Transylvanian Unitarian Minister to study at Starr King School for the Ministry and the GTU almost every year since 1994.
The Balázs Scholars Program is funded by donations from individuals, money from the Partner Church Council, and from honoraria, donations and Sunday service collections from the churches where the Balázs scholar preaches. The major fundraising event of the year, the annual Balázs Tea, has been cancelled due to COVID-19. We appreciate your help to sustain this important program. Donations can be made via the form below.
