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.

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