Prestigious Gates Cambridge Scholarship Awarded to New Testament PhD Applicant

Daniel Stevens

These scholarships, which are among the most prestigious of international academic awards, are part of a scholarship programme established by a very substantial donation to the University from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in 2000. Daniel is one of 35 successful candidates from more than 800 applicants; following a process of selection at Departmental and University levels over 80 candidates were interviewed by UK and US academics at the Gates Foundation HQ in Seattle in January. Candidates are expected have an outstanding academic record and research proposal, but also to have demonstrated significant leadership qualities and social commitment. Daniel, who studied for his BA (Greek) at the University of California, Los Angeles, and for a MDiv at The Master’s Seminary (California), has held leadership roles in student organizations, and given a particular commitment to mentoring others at high school and college; he also spent time with a University student group teaching children in a migrant workers’ camp in China.  He will be undertaking research on the Letter to the Hebrews under the supervision of Dr Simon Gathercole, Reader in New Testament.

 

A further cohort of Gates Cambridge Scholars drawn from other parts of the world will be announced in April.
