The ABHE Scholarship is a program created exclusively for graduates from ABHE-accredited schools. The scholarship covers 33% of the tuition costs for any Master of Divinity, Master of Arts, or Certificate program.

In order to qualify for this scholarship, students must:

  • Possess a bachelor’s degree from an ABHE-accredited school
  • Demonstrate high academic performance with a 3.0 GPA or above
  • Enroll in a program by spring 2021

In order to qualify for the scholarship, students should contact their admissions representative and make sure they are listed as a graduate from an ABHE-accredited school.

Students who receive the scholarship must maintain a 3.0 GPA for the duration of their seminary program. The scholarship will extend for 5 years from the first semester a students enrolls.

When this scholarship is combined with the advanced standing policy at WBS, an ABHE student pursuing an MDiv would only need to take 60 credit hours.

An MA, paired with 9 hours of advanced standing, would reduce the program length to 41 hours.
