Gifting to Trinity Scholarships

Here at Trinity School for Ministry, we are thankful for donors like you who want to champion the cause of Christ by coming alongside Trinity students through scholarships. Whatever your desires – be it to honor a loved one or to assist students from a specific geographic region of the United States or the world – supporting an existing scholarship at Trinity or establishing a new one is an excellent way to make a direct, long-term impact for the Kingdom of God.

Scholarships are essential to make it more affordable for students to train for mission and ministry here at Trinity. Today, the total cost of taking a 3-year Master of Divinity degree residentially in preparation for ordained ministry is typically about $100,000 (about $30,000 in tuition fees and $70,000 in general living costs). Our current scholarship funds typically offer full-tuition scholarships for those who demonstrate need.

Trinity continuously strives to strengthen existing scholarship funds while encouraging new scholarship fund opportunities to enhance the school's ability to attract and retain quality students. Please contact the Development Team (development@tsm.edu or 1-800-874-8754) if you are interested in exploring the possibility of funding a scholarship.
