candlerCandler School of Theology is committed to providing financial support for its students, and four new scholarships are now in the mix for those applying to the school’s Master of Divinity degree program for the 2017-18 academic year. 

The intent of the new scholarships—one Dean’s Scholarship and three Faculty Scholarships—is to mitigate a student’s need to borrow money for tuition, fees, or living expenses during his or her time at Candler. With that in mind, each of the four scholarships will fund full tuition plus a generous stipend for all three years of the MDiv program.

Candler offers a number of other scholarship opportunities that cover up to full tuition. They include five Robert W. Woodruff Fellowships, which are awarded each academic year, covering full tuition, fees and an annual stipend. Learn more about scholarship opportunities at Candler.

In order to be considered for all available scholarships, prospective students must apply by the priority deadline of January 15, 2017. No supplemental application is required. Apply to Candler.

The new scholarships strengthen Candler’s financial aid program, already one of the most robust in theological education. For the 2016-17 academic year, 88% of all Candler students and 95% of Master of Divinity students received scholarship support, with the average scholarship covering 66% of tuition. In all, Candler awarded $5.75 million in financial aid.
