A limited amount of financial assistance is available for most Lifelong Learning programs. Scholarships and fee discounts are available through the generosity of donors who support the Center for Lifelong Learning with their gifts.
We ask that you also seek assistance from your local congregation and/or church governing body (i.e., presbytery or equivalent). Many churches and governing bodies have designated funds available to assist people with theological education. If you’re uncertain about how to do this, we suggest you ask your pastor or local governing body.
Requests for scholarships or fee discounts must be made for each individual course.
Financial assistance is limited to program fees only and does not apply to travel or housing expenses.
Because our resources for financial assistance are limited, we encourage you to apply for assistance as early as possible. Also, seats fill up quickly for some courses. We advise you to register for the course, pay a deposit if required or indicate you will pay later by check at the same time you apply for financial assistance.
