A rising senior at Eastern Mennonite University was among 70 students nationwide named an "Undergraduate Fellow" by the Fund for Theological Education (FTE).

Rebekah A. Good, a nursing and culture, religion and mission major from Manheim, Pa., received the award, which is aimed at encouraging gifted students to explore vocations in church ministry.

Each Undergraduate Fellow received a $1,500 stipend for tuition and living expenses to attend the 2005 FTE Conference on Excellence in Ministry, "Ministry for the Common Good," held June 15-19, 2005 at Eden Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Mo. Fellows are also eligible for an additional $500 award to fund a mentoring relationship.

Ms. Good, a 2003 graduate of Eastern Mennonite High School, is the daughter of Clair and Beth Good and a member of Bossler Mennonite Church, Elizabethtown, Pa.

The FTE has awarded $1.2 million in fellowships and other support this year. To qualify as an Undergraduate Fellow, a student must hold at least a 3.0 cumulative grade point average, demonstrate leadership gifts and be a junior or senior at an accredited college or university.

The Fund for Theological Education is a leading national advocate for excellence and diversity in Christian ministry. Its work supports the next generation of pastoral leaders, providing fellowships and a network of support to encourage high-quality candidates to explore vocations in ministry and teaching.

Since 1954, the Atlanta-based organization has awarded more than 5,600 fellowships in partnership with others committed to the future of quality leadership for the church. More information is available at www.thefund.org.
