Scholarships offered at Wesley range from 1/3 tuition coverage up to 100% tuition coverage. Student applying for admission to the M.Div., or MTS. degree programs are automatically evaluated for scholarship eligibility. The priority deadline for applying for admission and thus for consideration for merit aid is February 1. There is no separate scholarship application.
Need grants are available to students who demonstrate need via the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and on the Wesley Financial Assistance Application. Both documents are due by the priority deadline of May 1 for consideration. The FAFSA code is 00146400. The Wesley Financial Assistance Application can be found under Resources.
Students are encouraged to borrow conservatively, exhausting all other sources of aid first. Stafford loans provide students with the best borrower benefits, with a low fixed interest rate and low fees. The FAFSA code is 00146400.
The FAFSA Application must be completed in order to request Stafford Loans.
