The purpose of the Dr. John M. Perkins Divinity Fund is to provide a scholarship, or other financial aid which may be awarded in the form of stipends for internships, to students attending the Wake Forest University School of Divinity. The scholarships and financial aid will be given to students seeking a theological education to enhance – their ability to bring restoration to communities of need, bring dignity to the poor and create partnerships among Christian communities. Recipients may elect to intern at the John and Vera Mae Perkins Foundation in Jackson, Mississippi or elsewhere. Recipients may be given a published book by Dr. Perkins. Wake Forest will develop and maintain appropriate
procedures as necessary to accomplish the Fund’s purpose.
