Pastoral Counseling Scholarship

A NEW SCHOLARSHIP TO HELP YOU FOCUS YOUR STUDIES

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 40 units (units 1-39), 40% of tuition costs for the second 40 units (units 40-79), and 50% of tuition costs for the final 40 units (units 80-120) of the MDiv program.*

*All percentages are approximate

To be considered for this scholarship, incoming students must plan to begin in Winter 2021, meet the following eligibility requirements and complete and return an application by clicking below.

Both a formal request for a transfer credit evaluation and official transcript evidence for relevant coursework must be formally received by Fuller’s Academic Advising Office before the last day of a given quarter term if the transfer credit is to have an effect on the student's tuition fees in the following quarter. The scholarship discount will not be applied retroactively.
