In addition to tuition aid grants, by working through the ABC Board of National Ministries in Valley Forge, PA, American Baptist students who have been members of an American Baptist Church for a minimum of one year have the opportunity to make their own requests for direct scholarship aid from any member congregation or ABC organization. The Board of National Ministries can match funds raised by students on a dollar-for-dollar basis to $1,000 per student per year (which would provide a potential total of $2,000 per student in addition to the usual ABSW tuition grant).
The exact amount can vary from year to year, based on the number of students who apply for SSP monies. Continuing ABC students who are carrying 9 to 12 units for the M.Div. degree are eligible for the matching funds. New students beginning the M.Div. program have an August 1 deadline for fall semester, and a January 1 deadline for spring semester. Payments are sent directly to the seminaries to be credited to each student’s account. Work/study jobs are another source of financial aid, and a limited number of positions are available on campus.
