Harvey Fellows Program

In 2017 the Foundation invested $384,000 in support of 32 graduate students preparing to enter strategic vocations in academia, the arts, and the marketplace. We were privileged to award 9 new fellowships to an extraordinary group of graduate students from around the world.

The Mustard Seed Foundation initiated the Harvey Fellows Program in 1992 to mark, equip, and encourage followers of Jesus Christ who seek to actively integrate their faith and vocations as leaders in strategic occupations where Christians appear to be underrepresented. This idea grew from our understanding of God as Creator and Redeemer, not only of human beings, but also of society’s disciplines and structures. Our desire is to identify, prepare, and celebrate this generation’s Josephs, Lydias, Daniels, and Esthers—Christians who will assume positions of leadership and influence in society. The Harvey Fellowship is a stipend of $16,000 that may be renewed for up to two additional years. The award is given to outstanding students enrolled at a premier graduate degree program and is therefore very competitive. Harvey Fellows typically attend schools considered by professionals to be among the top five globally in a given subject area or specialty.
