Scholarships

We are committed to making your graduate degree as affordable as possible. For this reason, we offer many institutional scholarships to help offset the cost of tuition, and most students at Emmanuel are eligible for some level of a scholarship.

Emmanuel Christian Seminary at Milligan offers Honors and Academic Scholarships. The Honors Scholarships are the most competitive scholarships awarded and require a separate scholarship application. The Academic Scholarships do not require an additional application, with the exception of the Pacific Northwest. Please note that institutional scholarships may not be stacked on top of one another, with the exception of the Church Match Scholarship. More information about all of our scholarships is listed below.


HONORS SCHOLARSHIPS:

The Honors Scholarships are the most competitive scholarships awarded in the Master of Divinity, Master of Arts in Religion, and Master of Arts in Christian Ministries programs. They require a separate scholarship application and recipients are selected by a scholarship committee. Scholarship applicants not selected for one of the Honors Scholarships will be eligible for another institutional scholarship. Please note that institutional scholarships may not be stacked on top of one another, with the exception of the Church Match Scholarship.


ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPS:

The Academic Scholarships do not require an additional scholarship application (with the exception of the Pacific Northwest Scholarship and Tom & Debbie Jones Stadia Church Leadership Scholarship). Information from the admission application is used to determine if a student meets the scholarship criteria. Please note that institutional scholarships may not be stacked on top of one another, with the exception where noted below. More information about all of our scholarships is listed below.

Friends Stand in the Gap

Student tuition covers only part of the cost of a seminary education. For example, the actual cost of an M.Div. degree is approximately $50,000 more than the tuition rate a student pays. In addition to the reduced tuition rate, most students receive a scholarship to further offset their tuition costs.

Many alumni, individuals, and churches stand in the gap for our students with their generosity. We are extremely grateful to these friends who partner with Emmanuel Christian Seminary at Milligan to prepare and equip the next generation of Kingdom workers.
