The Candler School of Theology at Emory University in Atlanta has established an endowed scholarship program to provide financial aid for students in its Black Church Studies Program. The new scholarship program has been named to honor Noel Erskine, Luther Smith, and Romney Moseley, three men that were among the first Black faculty members at the School of Theology. The Erskine-Smith-Moseley scholarship fund will begin providing scholarships and stipends to students in the program in the fall of 2014.

Noel Erskine has been a member of the faculty at the school since 1977 and currently serves as a professor of theology and ethics.

Luther Smith is a professor of church and community. He joined the faculty at the School of Theology in 1979.

Romney Moseley joined the faculty in 1982 and was an associate professor of theology and human development. He also served as assistant dean of academic affairs. Professor Moseley died in 1992.
