Alum Referral Scholarships


Degree-seeking applicants who are referred by an alum of Saint John's School of Theology and Seminary are eligible for a tuition scholarship. Their program of study can be in any of the master's degree programs of the School of Theology and Seminary. Two awards, ranging from 50% to 100%, are available each year to qualified candidates.  Alums, steeped in the spirit of Saint John's, understand the school's dedication to a life-long pursuit of wisdom as well as Saint John's ongoing commitment to the academic, spiritual, pastoral, and professional formation of lay and ordained ministers. Alums are well-positioned to recommend men and women who would be excellent candidates for service to the church.
