Financial Aid Office

We are dedicated to providing the best possible service to support our students who are being formed as servants in Jesus Christ who will teach the faithful, reach the lost, and care for all.

We encourage prospective students to learn as much as possible about available financial aid before attending Concordia Theological Seminary.  Students in many of our degree programs are eligible to receive tuition grants from the Seminary; those enrolled in residential church worker programs are eligible for the 100% tuition coverage program.  Federal student loans and federal work-study are also available for those who qualify.  Outside scholarships and other grants are available for those who meet the required criteria.  Application forms must be submitted each academic year, and deadlines must be followed in order to be considered for any financial aid.  The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page offers you step-by-step instructions on what you need to do in order to receive financial aid.

Choose a scholarship pathway:

CTSFW has two pathways for pursuing scholarships. In some cases you can pursue both. CTSFW offers both internal CTSFW Scholarships, those awarded by CTSFW directly, and outside scholarships, those awarded by organizations outside of CTSFW. Please note that outside scholarships apply only to residential programs. All scholarships have different requirements and eligibility. Not all scholarships apply to all programs.
