Scholarships for New Students

A small number of scholarships are issued for students who begin in the fall semester of each year. They cover tuition costs for each year of the program, but require registration each January for confirmation. The living expenses are covered for the student, but for the first year only. It is expected that the student’s other supporters will sustain living needs for the remaining years of study. Unfortunately, scholarships are few and on campus employment is not guaranteed, so do not depend on these options as your likely source of support.

Financial Planning Tips for New Students

  1. On-campus employment is possible but openings are limited. Unfortunately, it cannot be counted as support when proving your finances to attend seminary.
  2. Be sure your sources of support are firm and secure. A strong financial basis is key to enabling you to concentrate fully on your studies once you arrive. Since you have proven sufficient funds to study for 12 months, problems should not arise within the first year. All F-1 students are encouraged to develop a team of supporters for the duration of their studies.
