​Mennonite Healthcare Fellowship
(MHF) would like your assistance to spread the word about this opportunity for graduate students in healthcare fields of study in your congregations, communities, and families.  MHF's Student Elective Term (SET) is one of the primary tools to encourage the younger generation of healthcare professionals to integrate Christian faith with professional practice.  During the holiday season when students return to home communities and families gather for holiday celebrations is a prime time to get out the word.  

Here is our essential short announcement that can be used in bulletins and/or newsletters. 

Graduate Students in Healthcare Professions:  Mennonite Healthcare Fellowship (MHF) offers scholarship funding for Anabaptist students to learn and serve in cross-cultural mission/service settings in developing countries. Deadline for 2015-16 academic year is May 15, 2015.  For details and application form, see http://mennohealth.org/SET, email info@mennohealth.org, or call 1-888-406-3643

In addition, we are attaching a simple 8.5 X 11 flyer/poster (also available online) that you can print on a color printer and post on bulletin boards. 

  • If you are a conference office, we would appreciate your passing this on to your congregations.  
  • If you are an institution or organization, please pass it on to whomever could be potentially helpful in getting out the word. 
  • If you are a congregation, please pass this on to individuals and families in healthcare-related professions.  
  • Your personal encouragement to a student you know in a healthcare-related field can also be very valuable!  
In the past, SET was a program for medical students.  With Mennonite Healthcare Fellowship, it has been expanded!  We suggest that you think of dental students, Masters in Nursing students, physical therapy students, and Masters in Social Work students for starters and then be further attuned to any other students in healthcare-related fields at the masters or doctoral level. 

Further information is available on the MHF website:

If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the MHF Office at info@mennohealth.org.

As we celebrate the coming of Christ into our broken world, let us encourage each other to continue his healing mission!
