The TEDS Academic Scholarship Program is our highest and most prestigious scholarship at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. This is for new incoming Master of Divinity Students who have demonstrated academic excellence, ministerial service, and potential for leadership.
For this academic year, incoming students to the Master of Divinity Program will have the opportunity to compete for our new Gleason Archer Scholarships (100% of tuition), Grant Osborne Scholarships (75% of tuition), Robert Duncan Culver Scholarships (50% of tuition), or to receive a number of our previously existing scholarships (up to 50% of tuition).
To be considered for this program, students must meet the following requirements:
