Divinity School Grant
The Divinity School Grant is based upon financial need. It is available to full-time M.Div. and M.A. students and is given on a first-come, first-served basis. Financial need is determined in part from the amount of expected family contribution (after a student completes a FAFSA) and from other financial aid the student has independently obtained. The grant is then allocated by calculating a percentage of the need. The student account is credited the grant award per semester, in a ratio equal to the number of registered classes.
A student must demonstrate financial need on an annual basis by completing the FAFSA.
The Presidential Scholarship is based upon merit and is offered to new students who have achieved a GPA of 3.25 or greater on their last completed degree. This scholarship is renewable if the continuing eligibility qualifications are maintained. To be eligible, a student must maintain a GPA of 3.25; be in full-time study (part-time with documented disabilities) and be in good standing with the school. Eligibility will be reviewed annually before the fall semester.
