Pastoral Counseling Scholarship


Fuller is now accepting applications for the Pastoral Counseling Scholarship. Both on-campus and online, Fuller prioritizes a learning environment where students, faculty, and staff collaborate and encourage one another in their individual and collective callings. Fuller is committed to giving students holistic preparation for their faithful next step and, wherever possible, allowing them to customize their studies to match their interests and goals. 

For those seeking to focus on bringing holistic healing and restoration to their congregations and communities through pastoral counseling, we are offering the Pastoral Counseling Scholarship to select incoming Master of Divinity (MDiv) students. Supporting the theological education and spiritual formation of these students, the Pastoral Counseling Scholarship will cover 30% of tuition costs for the first 10 courses, 40% of tuition costs for the second 10 courses, and 50% of tuition costs for the final 10 courses of the MDiv program.

To be considered for this scholarship, incoming students must meet the following eligibility requirements, as well as complete and return an application by clicking below.
