Financing Your Education

The Divinity School shares the larger University's commitment to making graduate education accessible and supportable for students of all economic backgrounds, and we make every effort to assist admitted students who seek financial assistance in support of their studies. 

Most Divinity School students finance their degree programs through some combination of scholarship aid, personal savings, family contributions, guaranteed student loans, and part-time employment. Graduate education represents a significant mutual investment—of the student in the work and life of the School, and of the School in the work and life of the student—and we encourage prospective students to explore multiple avenues of support as they approach the application process.
