Financial Aid & Scholarships

Many students at Moravian Theological Seminary receive need-based financial assistance each year. In 2019-2020, more than 50% of our students received scholarships based on financial need. The average scholarship package subsidized one-third of the cost of tuition. For some students, it was as high as 35%.

Genesis Scholarship

Go ahead, give it a shot! The Genesis Scholarship pays for two credits for an approved three-credit course for those who want to test out a masters-level course. You don’t have to be accepted into a degree program to receive the Genesis Scholarship. The number of Genesis Scholarships is limited and are awarded on a first-accepted basis.

MTS Endowed Scholarship Funds

Many alumni and friends of MTS believe so strongly in our unique programs that they have created scholarships to support students for years to come. Each year, many students qualify for financial assistance through these scholarships. Eligibility for receiving grants from these funds is determined based on financial need calculated by the FAFSA.

Other Financial Aid

Federal Stafford Loans and Graduate PLUS Loans are available to qualified students with bachelor's degrees who are taking at least 6 credits per semester and enrolled in a degree program. Other resources are available through Supervised Ministry placements, denominational agencies, outside scholarships, and on-campus and outside employment.


To receive financial aid for the Spring 2021 semester, new students must apply by December 13, 2020. Applications for assistance received after the deadline cannot be guaranteed an award. But don’t wait for December 13th if you don’t have to. The earlier you apply for financial aid, the more scholarships are available.

The Office of Enrollment works in conjunction with the Moravian College Financial Aid Office to process financial aid for seminary students. For more information about financial aid, contact Randy D'Angelo in the Office of Enrollment (, 610-861-1512).
