The Amy A. Northcutt Scholarship and Lecture

The Amy A. Northcutt Scholarship and annual lecture & celebration are envisioned as ways to honor and sustain Amy’s love of people and ideas, her relish in thinking creatively and critically to solve problems and build connections, and her sense of God’s grace in the world and our responsibility for each other. Amy was the Chief Information Officer of the National Science Foundation at the time of her death. An attorney by training and a leader in government and nonprofit organizations, she was an alumna of DDH and former president of its Board of Trustees, and a person of deep faith.

Amy was always looking for that sacred space that allowed for connections and differences between people and ideas, always with the hope of transformation and reconciliation, Craig Middlebrook recalls. By building a scholarship at the Disciples Divinity House together, we are creating and sustaining such a space.

When fully funded, the scholarship will benefit promising women leaders who are pursuing theological studies at the University of Chicago.

On May 5, 2018, Stephanie Paulsell spoke on The Fragrance of Truth: Theological Education and Religious Community, at the Lutheran Church of the Reformation in Washington D.C. 

This inaugural lecture explored a vision for the kind of transformative religious community in which Amy was formed and which she believed was urgently needed in our day: one in which prayer and justice, learning and living are intertwined and the deepest possibilities of our humanity cherished and explored.

Attendees joined Craig, Henry, and Lei Lei Middlebrook, and other family and friends, for dinner and lecture to celebrate Amy's life and the Amy A. Northcutt Scholarship.
