Through the To Every Generation campaign, our goal is to raise $150,000 by December 31, 2021. Here is where we are at:
The future of the 28twelve Foundation depends on you, the community of Harvey Fellows, in order to achieve our goals of marking, equipping and nurturing Christian graduate students to be leaders in their strategic fields. Will you support us by playing a part in the next phase of the Harvey Fellows program?
For almost 30 years, the Harvey Fellows program has been bringing light to dark places. Each year, a select group of graduate students are chosen to be Harvey Fellows and are generously equipped with financial resources to undertake advanced study at premier graduate institutions in preparation for vocations that are culturally influential. They seek to make Christ known in places where He is not, and impact society with the values of the Kingdom of God.
Over the next 3 years, the 28twelve Foundation will take over this important work from the Mustard Seed Foundation, which founded the Harvey Fellows. The 28twelve Foundation is committed to continuing and expanding what MSF began by offering unmatched support to a new generation of Christian scholars and leaders.
The 28twelve Foundation seeks to provide vision for the future of the Harvey Fellows program, ensure the continued support and provision of the Harvey Fellowship and encourage fellows through fostering community
The Harvey Fellowship provides financial support to Christian students pursuing graduate studies at premier institutions with a vision to impact society through their vocations. For over 28 years, the Harvey Fellows program has sought to mark, equip and encourage individuals to actively integrate their faith and vocation as leaders in strategic occupations. The Harvey Fellowship is a $16,000 stipend awarded through a competitive process. The stipend may be renewed for up to an additional two years.
