Financial Aid & Scholarships

Many students at Moravian Theological Seminary receive need-based financial assistance each year. In 2015-2016, 78% of our students received scholarships based on financial need. The average scholarship package subsidized one-third of the cost of tuition. For some students, it was as high as 45%.

Genesis Scholarship

Go ahead, give it a shot! The Genesis Scholarship pays for two credits for an approved three credit course who want to test out a masters-level course. You don’t have to be accepted into a degree program to receive the Genesis Scholarship. The number of Genesis Scholarships is limited and are awarded on a first-accepted basis.

MTS Endowed Scholarship Funds

Many alumni and friends of MTS believe so strongly in our unique programs that they have created scholarships to support students for years to come. Each year, many students qualify for financial assistance through these scholarships. Eligibility for receiving grants from these funds is determined based on financial need calculated by the FAFSA.

Other Financial Aid

Federal Stafford Loans, Graduate PLUS Loans, and work study are available to qualified students with bachelor's degrees who are taking at least 6 credits per semester and enrolled in a degree program. Other resources are available through Supervised Ministry placements, denominational agencies, outside scholarships, and on-campus and outside employment.

Applying

To receive financial aid for the fall semester, new students must apply by April 15th of the preceding academic year. Applications for assistance received after the deadline cannot be guaranteed an award. But don’t wait for April 15th if you don’t have to. The earlier you apply for financial aid, the more scholarships are available.

The MTS Office of Enrollment works in conjunction with the Moravian College Financial Aid Office to process financial aid for MTS students. For more information about financial aid, contact David DeRemer in the Office of Enrollment (deremerd@moravian.edu, 610-861-1512).
