Scholarships / Bursary (Student Financial Aid)
General Notes

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.

St. John the Baptist Scholarship

The St. John the Baptist Scholarship, provided by an anonymous donor, is awarded with consideration of need.

Holy Trinity Seminary Scholarship (Graduate)

The Holy Trinity Seminary Scholarship for graduate students was funded by many donors, whose sacrifices together fully funded two and one-half graduate scholarships! These were awarded to three students in 2018, enabling them to attend HTOS' Master of Divnity Program.


The Colonel George Codrea, USMC Memorial Scholarship was established in 2019 by Archpriest Alexander F.C. and Matushka Kathleen Webster. This is a half-tuition M.Div. scholarship that has been offered to graduate students to honor a devout Romanian Orthodox layman whose service in WWII as a U.S. Marine earned him the Navy Cross at the Battle of Guadalcanal in 1942 during World War II and, during the Korean War, the Navy and Marine Corps Medal, the highest non-combat decoration awarded for heroism by the United States Department of the Navy.
