Institutional scholarships are awarded by the administration to B.Th. and C.P.S. students on the basis of academic status of applicants and in consideration of individual financial situations. Institutional scholarship funds are not available for the self-study C.T.S. All scholarships are awarded directly through the Seminary and are payable toward tuition or room and board prior to the beginning of the fall semester. Incoming students who wish to be considered for financial aid should apply by April 1 and indicate need on the application form. Continuing students must be enrolled full-time and be in good standing in order to remain eligible. “Good Standing” in this case means a GPA above 3.0 for undergraduate and regular attendance of daily liturgies. For graduate students, "good standing" means a GPA of 3.3 or above. Enrollment in other than registered or otherwise approved programs may jeopardize a student's eligibility for certain student aid awards.
