Merit Scholarships

Perkins School of Theology fellowships and scholarships are based on merit to those applicants who have at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average from previous academic work. Perkins Financial Aid Grants are based on need and availability. Each year Perkins offers financial aid to entering degree-seeking students. Each year, nearly 75 percent of Perkins students will receive some form of financial assistance from Perkins School of Theology.  For priority consideration, applicants should apply for admission before February 1. Students entering in the spring term are not eligible.

There are many outside scholarships that are based on merit.  Students are encouraged to apply as early as possible and to give careful attention to deadlines and requirements.
