Divinity School Scholarships

The Divinity School is committed to making graduate study affordable and accessible. The School awards over $10 million dollars in scholarship assistance to students annually. 

Masters Applicants

All applicants to our 3 masters programs are automatically considered for Divinity School Scholarships. There isn't a separate scholarship application. Scholarships for master’s students are awarded based solely on the strength of your admission application materials. Awards range from 40% to 100% of tuition costs. Exceptional students may be awarded a living stipend in addition to a scholarship. Scholarship notifications are included in the admission decision. The average scholarship for master’s students is $25,000 which covers about 75% of tuition costs.

All Divinity School Scholarships are renewable for each year of the academic program – 2 years for MA students and 3 years for MDiv students. Additionally, the Divinity School provides scholarship assistance for summer language study at the University.

Doctoral Applicants

All admitted doctoral students are offered a fellowship package that includes a full-tuition scholarship, coverage of the student premium of the University's Student Health Insurance Plan (USHIP), and a $31,000 annual living stipend. The fellowship package is renewable for 7 years – the maximum registration limit for the PhD program.
