Divinity School Scholarships

The Divinity School is committed to making graduate study affordable and accessible. The School awards over $11 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 covers about 80% 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.

Masters applicants hoping to be considered for the full range of Divinity School scholarships should apply by the Priority Round deadline. 

Doctoral Applicants
Students admitted to the PhD program in 2016 and beyond receive a fellowship package that includes full tuition coverage, health insurance coverage for the student through the University Health Insurance Plan (U-SHIP), payment of the student life fee, and a $37,000 living stipend. The doctoral student fellowship is renewed annually for the maximum registration period.
