Promise for Ministry Scholarships for Excellence

These scholarships honor individuals who, by the merit of previous experience and performance in roles of leadership, demonstrate to their respective Churches and church leaders great promise for leadership in ministry. This is a significant component that distinguishes Louisville Seminary’s Scholarship for Excellence Program among other seminary scholarship programs. Where the Church sees gifts and skills for ministry, Louisville Seminary is graced to partner in this unique way to provide the means to prepare and hone that rich promise and to offer scholarships of up to $20,000 per year. Promise for Ministry scholarships can be annually renewed for up to three years.

The New Horizons Promise for Ministry Scholarships
Supporting students from particularly challenged backgrounds and with a goal to broaden students’ awareness of other cultures, the New Horizons Scholarships cover expenses other than tuition. These scholarships are offered to students in both Masters and Doctoral programs.

The Rogers Foundation Promise for Ministry Scholarship
A renewable three-year promise for ministry scholarship, the Rogers Foundation Scholarship is an open, non-restrictive Promise for Leadership in Ministry Scholarship and provides up to $20,000 toward tuition, fees, books, and living expenses.

The Dean K. and Rebecca M. Thompson Promise for Ministry Scholarship
A renewable three-year promise for ministry scholarship, the Thompson Scholarship is offered to students who demonstrate a pastoral heart and understanding that represent the call and commitment to long-distance pastoral ministry, which the Thompsons have incarnated and advocated throughout their own ministries by providing up to $20,000 toward tuition, fees, books, and living expenses.

The Peggy Able Wagner Promise for Ministry Scholarship
A renewable three-year promise for ministry scholarship, the Peggy Able Wagner Scholarship has as its preference international students and provides up to $20,000 toward tuition, fees, books, and living expenses.

Tuition-Plus Scholarships for Excellence (Dean’s Scholarships)
These are a category of Promise for Ministry Scholarships that honor individuals who, by the merit of previous experience and performance in roles of leadership, demonstrate to their respective Churches and church leaders great promise for leadership in ministry. For students who qualify for and who are the recipients of up to a full tuition grant (currently valued at $9,660), Louisville Seminary will supplement, as funds are raised and made available, tuition assistance with new Tuition-Plus Scholarships for Excellence.

Tuition-Plus Scholarships will be valued between $5,000 and $10,000. When supplemented with a tuition grant, this type of scholarship support can be enhanced to equal the value of a full Scholarship for Excellence. In this case, the donor and the Seminary work together in a partnership of financial aid support instead of the donor providing the full Scholarship for Excellence, which is valued at up to $20,000 per year. These scholarships provide support for fees, books, and living expenses.
