Trinity Church Wall Street and Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York (Union) today announced the creation of the Trinity Union Fellows program, which will bring international students to Trinity and Union for one year of academic training and faith formation.
The program will begin in the 2018-2019 academic year with an initial cohort of up to six students from China and India.

Dr. William Lupfer, Rector of Trinity Church Wall Street. “This program will provide an opportunity for international students to immerse themselves in the rigorous academic environment at Union, as well as the community life of the growing congregation at Trinity Church, providing a well-rounded experience for these future Christian leaders.”
