Scholarship Overview

Got your sights set on an MDiv or MACE degree, and want some financial support to help you on your journey? If so, consider applying for the People of Color Supplemental Award! To be eligible for the grant, you must be an active member of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and enrolled full-time at an ATS-accredited seminary. While applicants pursuing a MACE degree don’t need to be an Inquirer/Candidate, those pursuing a MDiv degree (or MDiv/Dual Degree) must be an Inquirer or Candidate when entering years 1 and 2 and a Candidate when entering year 3. All applicants must also demonstrate financial need. If you fit these requirements, don’t hesitate to apply for the Native American Education Grant and give yourself a boost in pursuing your academic goals!
