Partners Scholarship Program
Erskine Theological Seminary is proud to offer our Partners Scholarship Program. This program provides a 100% tuition scholarship to educate students for service in the Christian Church. In addition to the financial award, the Partners Scholarship Program provides our students with the opportunity to strengthen relationships with their church and their community; it enables them to share their calling to the ministry.
The student must enroll fulltime. Since we offer this Scholarship for all our degree programs, fulltime status varies. Please refer to our catalog for the number of credit hours required for fulltime status for each degree. Credit hours are calculated from September through August and include J Term and Summer Term courses.
The student solicits sponsors who agree to pledge at least $40.00 per month for 12 months (September through August) to the Partners Scholarship Fund. The number of sponsors required varies depending on the degree the student is seeking. Please refer to our website for further details: www. erskine.edu/seminary. Select the Admissions tab, Financial Aid from the pull down menu, then scroll down to select Partners Scholarship Program Informational Document from the left side of the page.
In addition to recruiting individual sponsors, the student’s sponsoring church must agree to pledge $500.00 per year, each year the student participates in the program.
The student also agrees to pledge $40.00 per month for 12 months (September through August) to the Partners Scholarship Fund each year he/she participates in the program.
Erskine Seminary contributes the difference of up to $2,000.00 per year in scholarship funds. All contributions are tax deductible.
