About the Program

How does it work?

Apply: Interested individuals* should apply for the Partnership Program scholarship with the Gordon-Conwell Partnership Director. All application forms can be found on the forms page.

Gordon-Conwell provides the student* with a Full-Tuition Scholarship.

During their time at Gordon-Conwell, the student receives focused biblical, theological and historical training in stewardship.

  • Seminars and discussions, teach principles of stewardship, the biblical foundations of ministry support, and principles of fundraising and support maintenance.
  • Topics include personal budgeting and finances, discussions with pastors about church-related stewardship issues, and workplace related forums.

Identify, through your network of family and friends, approximately 5 donors who will each give $75/month to the Partnership Program Scholarship Fund and support you in prayer. Contributions are tax-deductible.

Make a good faith effort to come to seminary with a sending church that has confirmed your call to ministry, has agreed to pray for you regularly, and give $1,000 per year to the Partnership Program Scholarship Fund.

Raising support is unique to each student. Several sample scenarios include

  • 5 supporters at $75/month with a $1,000 commitment from a sending church.
  • 4 supporters at $100/month with a $1,000 commitment from a sending church.
  • 2 supporters at $500/year, 3 at $75/month and a $2,000 commitment from a sending church.
