Supporting Your Faithful Response to God's Call
Princeton Theological Seminary’s outstanding academic program provides a strong foundation for Christian ministry and leadership, ensuring that students are prepared to serve the Church and the world. Making this education financially feasible for our students is an important part of our commitment to serve the church of Jesus Christ.
We offer need-based grants, low interest loans, and merit-based scholarships to assist full-time master’s-level degree candidates in covering their educational expenses.
Over 90% of MDiv, MACEF, MTS, and dual MDiv/MACEF students receive grants or scholarships

“The financial aid I received allowed me to study, improve my skills as a pastoral care provider, and develop my gifts for ministry.”

Applying for Financial Aid
Merit-based Aid Programs
Merit-based scholarships are awarded as part of the admissions process. No separate application is required to be considered for merit-based aid. To be considered for a merit-based scholarship, applicants must complete their admissions application (including all supporting materials) and have an interview before January 15.
To apply for need-based financial aid, first complete the admissions application. Then, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online. The school code for Princeton Seminary is G02626. Once we have received your FAFSA results, you will be able to access the PTS application for aid.
We’ll also need a signed copy of your most recent federal income tax return. If any additional forms are needed, we’ll be in touch with you.
Once we have all the items needed to consider your application for aid, we will review them and be in touch with you, via email. If you have any questions, please contact our office.
