Funding from Other Sources
Gordon-Conwell students receive scholarships and grants from a number of foundations and organizations. Awards can depend on denomination, undergraduate school affiliation, scholastic ability, previous vocation, etc. The Financial Aid may assist by certifying educational cost for the potential recipients of these funds, but the student must take the initiative to make inquiries and apply to outside sources. We suggest students make themselves aware of other sources through inquiries to denominational headquarters, churches, libraries, etc.
Listed below are grants given annually to Gordon-Conwell students. Students are urged to apply if appropriate. A complete financial aid file is necessary in most instances.
Note: Students who receiving a Gordon-Conwell Institutional Scholarship or Grant are eligible to apply for outside scholarships.
Each year many students receive gifts and grants from home churches, individuals, foundations, and other interested groups. Look into all possibilities in this area before you begin seminary. Local libraries may have resource materials to assist you. Conduct your own scholarship search at:
