Courses pre-approved by Unity Institute to be taken at a local, accredited institution in accordance the M&RS program policy
Grant recipients receive a cheque for up to 25%* of the tuition amount. (*See document with full detailed information by clicking here.)
Upon graduation and ordination, the grant recipient is expected to return to Canada to minister for 2 years.
In the event there is not 1) an opening in Canada or 2) no appropriate and suitable match can be made with an existing Canadian Unity ministry, the scholarship recipient can request an exception to this requirement, subject to the approval of the Board of Directors.

HOW IT WORKS
A copy of the letter that you will receive from Unity Worldwide Ministries of your successful completion of SDS must be sent to the Unity Canada Treasurer (email@example.com) upon receipt of his/her License.
The Treasurer will inform the Board who will then authorize the Grant payment.
