Propel Women Partnership

The Propel Women cohort is a group of graduate students who choose to grow and learn together through Wheaton's M.A. in Evangelism and Leadership. The cohort enables you to learn and grow with other Propel Women through a unique program that allows you to stay active in your world. The cohort provides opportunities for study, conversation, and involvement with other participants during classes.

Last summer in 2017, Propel's founder Christine Caine, a nationally known speaker, author, and influencer, decided to pursue her M.A. in Evangelism and Leadership; she invited others to join her on the journey. When the cohort reached the cap, more women were still interested in joining! So, Wheaton and Propel have decided to start a second cohort this coming Summer 2018. Part of the courses will overlap with the first group, so that all the Propel women can get connected.

The Propel Scholarship

Propel staff, volunteers, and ministry leaders that are accepted into the M.A. in Evangelism and Leadership, or enroll as a special student with the intention of becoming degree-seeking students, receive a reduction in tuition

  • Self-paced Propel students who enroll in the degree receive a 25% tuition discount.
  • If Propel gathers a group of 15 or more students who take the classes at the same time and progress through the degree together, then each member of the that group will receive any extra 10% discount for a total of a 35% tuition discount. (If at any time the cohort drops below 15 students, the discount would revert to 25%.)
