The purpose of the Princeton Theological Seminary program for student financial aid is to assist our students in the educational preparation for ministry. We do this by providing need-based grants, fellowships, work opportunities, and loans to our eligible degree candidates.
Currently, approximately 90% of our full-time M.Div, MA, M.Div/MA and MA(ts) candidates receive assistance through the PTS grant or fellowship programs.
