Scholarships and Other Financial Aid

SCHOLARSHIPS AND FINANCIAL AID

Introduction

Full tuition scholarships are available for the 2014-2015 Academic Year. Applications are currently available for current and prospective students.

Trinity School for Ministry maintains low tuition relative to other seminaries and the Ambridge area has a relatively low cost of living. Yet many students require financial aid. Trinity encourages students to apply for scholarships and carefully consider any amount of student loans they acquire. Financial aid at Trinity is available for qualifying matriculated students. Each student will be given careful consideration. Trinity will determine financial assistance based on federal and institutional guidelines and will not discriminate.

The primary goal in awarding financial aid is to help meet the financial need of students to enable them to secure theological and ministerial education, to ensure equity and consistency in packaging aid, equal educational opportunity, and to be in compliance with federal and state regulations. Students should assume primary responsibility for paying educational costs.
