Wesley Biblical Seminary is offering free seminary for the summer and fall semesters. Students will only have to pay for the cost of books and a $200 technology fee, if they take six or more credits.
Every course a student takes will count towards an accredited degree program or graduate certificate at WBS.
“In our conversations with students, money is the number one obstacle to completing seminary,” said Elijah Friedeman, vice president of enrollment. “During the economic uncertainty many students are facing, we wanted to do what we could to help them prepare for God’s calling.”
The scholarship will apply to both new and current students who enroll in courses for the summer and fall semseters in 2021. There is no limit to the number of students who can receive the scholarship.
“This is not a competitive scholarship. As long as students are in good academic standing, they can receive it,” Friedeman said. “This is an opportunity for students to experience tuition free seminary, no strings attached.”
In order to qualify for the full-tuition scholarship, students must meet the following criteria:
- Submit a current FAFSA
- Enroll in 4+ credits for the semester
- Be pursuing a master’s degree or graduate certificate at WBS
- Be in good academic standing (2.5+ GPA)
- Not be in default on any student loans
- Be a US citizen or permanent resident
Before being considered for the scholarship, students must be fully accepted. To enroll at WBS and qualify for the scholarship, complete an application for admission.
Wesley Biblical Seminary is a multi-denominational institution for theological education grounded in the Wesleyan tradition. WBS is fully accredited by the Association for Theological Schools.
