The story so far
ADM began offering its year-long Fellowships and Senior Fellowships in 2017. In 2018, applications tripled, and we added month-long Summer Fellowships to our Program in order extend the benefits of ADM Fellowships to more women.
The research and creative projects of ADM Fellows have spanned across a wide variety of fields, including history, literature, theology, biblical studies, pastoral care, ministry, visual arts, music, theatre, psychology, parenting, sexual and reproductive health, biomedical engineering and education. ADM Fellows have worked on books, journal articles, compositions, plays, paintings, courses, workshops and talks.
It has been an incredible joy to see our Fellows raised up for a lifetime of Christian public engagement. Our Alumni have moved into prominent roles in sectors such as the media, academia, and theological education. At ADM, we consider it a great honour to play a part in raising up Christian women to use their gifts to engage our culture with the good news of Jesus and do good in His world.
We’re thrilled to see the see the public sphere being filled with the voices of more and more theologically-rooted, mature and generous
