CSD Scholarships

Certificate in Spiritual Direction Scholarship Requests

CSD faculty and graduates have established a scholarship fund for students in the CSD program who need tuition assistance. Current CSD students can receive scholarship funds to help cover the tuition costs of one weekend per year during their time in the program. Scholarship funds do not cover travel or lodging. 

Scholarship requests must be received no later than 30 days prior to the CSD weekend to which it will be applied. 

Once the request is received, the scholarship committee with review your request. Our goal is for you will receive a response within 7 business days. Please note: Scholarship assistance varies from weekend-to-weekend based on the number of requests and available funds. 

If for any reason you are unable to attend the CSD weekend for which you received your scholarship, the awarded scholarships cannot be forwarded to another CSD weekend.
