Funding Your Seminary Education
Equip the Church of tomorrow by supporting the students of today.
One question almost anyone looking at seminary will ask is, “How will I pay for the education I feel God calling me to?” Despite the utmost faith in God’s provision, this question still holds many students back. Asbury Seminary is committed to providing as much assistance to students as possible to complete their education with minimal debt.
Church Tuition Assistance Program
The Church Tuition Assistance Program allows churches and alumni to partner with students by providing an annual donation to Asbury Seminary in a restricted fund reserved for students with high financial need and clear vocational goals. Churches commonly invite their members to make donations by dedicating one Sunday annually as Seminary Sunday and sending the offering from that day directly to Asbury Seminary.
Antioch Student Program
Just as the Church in Antioch sent out Paul and Barnabas, we invite your church to support students as they are equipped for future ministry.
The Antioch Student Program allows churches and alumni to partner directly with individual students to reduce the cost of their graduate-level theological education. Students are responsible for working with their financial aid consultant to ensure that they meet all program requirements.
Master of Arts and Master of Divinity (M.A. / M.Div.)
While priority will be given to those who apply early (before March 1 for students starting in the summer or fall), we encourage you to apply for any scholarships to which you qualify even if you are getting started a little late. As the start of the semester approaches, the availability of scholarships will begin to decrease, so apply as early as possible!
Master of Theology (Th.M.)
While scholarships for students in the Advanced Research Programs are typically awarded only to Ph.D. students, a number of other forms of financial aid may be available to Th.M. students.
Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)
A limited number of scholarships are available each year for incoming students in the Advanced Research Programs. During the admissions process, you should have received an invitation to apply for any scholarships for which you are eligible.
Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.)
While scholarships for D.Min. students are typically awarded only to those selected to a Beeson Program, a number of other forms of financial aid may be available to students who are currently in ministry.
