Providence Financial Aid

View the complete list of scholarship and bursaries available for Future Students here.
Please note that the Application Deadline is April 1st.

Seminary education is expensive. Students are encouraged to examine their present finances carefully, to seek the help of churches, foundations, and individuals, to maintain regular contact with their supporters, to determine how much they will need to earn during semesters and in the summer between semesters, to prayerfully consider the impact of student debt on their future, and in all of this to trust God fully to supply for material needs. Most often seminary education will require a frugal lifestyle, careful resource management, hard work, and great faith. The Lord often supplies at the last minute from unexpected sources. Providence Theological Seminary offers a limited number of bursaries, scholarships, and awards to deserving students. In addition, each student should understand that through the sacrificial donations of friends of the school, their tuition has already been reduced by $1,000. This, in effect, is a bursary awarded to each student who enrolls.

The annual amount of scholarships and bursaries awarded by Providence will now be credited for the full year in the Winter semester. Students who are completing their program requirements in a Fall semester will still receive their bursary in that Fall semester.

The majority of funds available to a student from other sources (summer earnings, student loans) are higher at the beginning of the Fall semester than the Winter semester. To balance this out, the scholarship and bursary funds will be given in the Winter semester when student funds are typically tighter.

Providence scholarships and bursaries come from a limited pool of funds. They are intended for deserving students who are committed to their education at Providence. Students who maintain an acceptable academic standing through the Fall semester and who are staying for the entire academic year (except in the case of the final semester of their academic program) will be eligible for those Scholarships and Bursaries.

Other Offerings

Seniors Bursary, Tuition Discount (no limit on courses)
Seniors (age 65 and over) will receive free tuition for all audited courses. In addition, one credit course will also receive free tuition, while all subsequent credit courses will receive a 50% discount. All regular student and library fees will still apply. Not all programs or courses are eligible for this bursary; all bursary applications will be considered by the Registrar's Office, and applicants will be contacted if their bursary will not apply.
