Women and men from any denomination are invited to explore a theological education and a vocation in church leadership. Eden Theological Seminary’s Explore Scholarship is a full tuition scholarship for any student who enrolls fulltime in the Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree program for their first year of study.
The Explore Scholarship is available to all students in the M.Div. degree program. To qualify for the degree program, prospective students must have completed a bachelor’s degree with a 2.7 GPA or above and be a person of faith involved in a church community. First-year students must also participate in contextual education, sometimes referred to as field education. Contextual education students work 10 hours a week with an Eden approved site and participate in a ministry seminar group for theological reflection.
There are no strings attached to the Explore Scholarship. This initial tuition-free first year provides an opportunity for students to explore theological education and to discern just how important this call is in their life.
Eden’s student body currently consists of women and men from approximately 18 denominations. Fifty percent of Eden students are women, with student ages ranging from the 20s to the 70s. Eden is a school of the United Church of Christ and is an Open and Affirming seminary.
