If interested in applying for scholarships as a new incoming Master’s student, you must be accepted into a program and complete the FAFSA to determine eligibility. First-year students, if determined need-eligible, will automatically be awarded a 10 percent scholarship. If your church or denomination is a seminary partner, you may come in under a different scholarship structure.
How Do Scholarships Work at Northeastern Seminary?
Scholarships are available for both part-time and full-time students. Awards are based on a percentage of tuition rather than a single amount. The more classes you take, the more scholarship money you are awarded. Once an application is submitted, the admissions team will let students know what scholarships they are eligible for.
If interested in applying for scholarships as a returning Master’s student, you must complete the FAFSA and submit the scholarship questionnaire. The scholarship questionnaire will be available in March. You will be matched to scholarships after submitting these items.
D.Min. students are offered generous scholarship opportunities of 10 or 25 percent off tuition.
