In addition to degree, certificate, and lifelong learning offerings, EDS offers a variety of additional educational opportunities. Opportunities for individual study are available through the Procter Scholar and Visiting Scholars programs. There are also workshops and lectures offered during the academic year, which offer a rich diversity of resources to the local faith and academic communities.
Visiting Scholar status is available to individuals. Inquiries should be directed to Dr. Angela Bauer-Levesque, EDS's academic dean. All fees are the responsibility of the applicant.

Procter Scholars are chosen for each academic year and may begin in either the Fall or Spring term. Expenses covered by the scholarship include tuition, a single room, and a meal card, which covers most weekday meals. The application deadlines are February 1 for the Fall semester and November 1 for the Spring semester. To apply, please send your CV and a project description (including a rationale why EDS is a good match for the particular project; and how the project contributes to EDS's mission) to EDS’s academic dean, Dr. Angela Bauer-Levesque, by the respective deadline.
