Financial Support

Religious Studies Tuition Award

Many students accepted into the M.A. program receive the “Religious Studies Tuition Award." This financial award is based on need, and can cover 20 - 35 percent of tuition costs for each of four semesters (the first three must be full-time and the last may be part-time).

Van Rompay Scholars

Additional scholarship awards are based on academic excellence. Based on academic excellence, two incoming students are selected each year by the M.A. Director and the selection committee as "Van Rompay Scholars."  Chosen for their outstanding academic promise, these students receive a tuition award of $1,000 (applied to the cost of tuition) for up to 4 semesters while enrolled in the program.
