Affording Seminary

A Perkins education is a valuable investment in developing your call to serve. The Office of Enrollment Management team is ready to work with you to make your seminary experience affordable with scholarships. We suggest that you also complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid to determine your qualifications for assistance from other sources and loan programs. Additional resources and tips on managing your educational and personal expenses also are offered through our Financial Literacy Program.

When you apply for admission, you are automatically considered for scholarship assistance. You will receive information about your scholarship award soon after notification of your acceptance to Perkins.
