Endowed Scholarships

The deadline for this application is August 1 for the fall semester and December 1 for the spring semester.

You must reapply each semester that you are in school. Applicants must take a minimum of four (4) credits in any given semester to be eligible in that semester.

You must have at least a 3.0 GPA to apply and receive any of these scholarships.

Scholarship money is disbursed after the add/drop period in the spring and fall semesters. Scholarship money will not be credited to a student’s account until a proper thank-you letter is on file with the seminary office and a copy has been sent to the donor/estate.

There is no scholarship money distributed for the summer semester.

This form is intended for degree-seeking students only. Non-degree students (special students, auditors) are not eligible for federal or institutional financial aid. Shepherd Project students are not eligible for these scholarships and should not complete this form.

There are three categories of endowed scholarships. You are welcome to fill out all for which you are eligible.

These scholarships are awarded as funds are available. Amounts vary.
