Financial Aid

TEDS offers a world-class seminary education with a variety of degree options meant to prepare you for carrying out God’s redemptive work in the world. We strive to offer a generous scholarship and financial aid program.

Applying for Financial Aid

Below are the steps that you should follow to complete the application process for financial aid at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School as well as the necessary forms you may require.

1. Apply to TEDS

As a new student, you will automatically be considered for TEDS Scholarships when you fill out and submit your application to TEDS. Returning students who need to renew their scholarships please fill out the following form. Returning Students Application >>

2. Endowed Scholarships

If you are looking for additional TIU scholarships fill out this application to see if you match with any of our endowed scholarships generously given by donors with this link: Endowed Scholarship Form >>

2. Apply for other scholarships, grants and rebates

Another way of lowering cost is by applying for other scholarship awards, rebates and grants. A full list of scholarship and grant offerings are provided here. See Grant and Rebates List >>

3. Complete FAFSA

Complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), if you are interested in student loans or on-campus employment. Only students who are United States citizens or eligible non-citizens can complete the FAFSA. The FAFSA should be completed and submitted electronically. Trinity’s school code is 001772. You should submit your application as early as possible. Go to >>

4. Review and return your reward letter

Upon review of your financial aid application and FAFSA results, we will send you an award letter. Be sure to return the signed award letter within 30 days of receipt. If you are awarded Federal Direct Loans, and are a first-time borrower at Trinity, you must complete a Master Promissory Note and online entrance counseling using the Federal Student Aid portal. Go to >>

Financial Aid Package

A financial aid package will not be awarded until acceptance is finalized. However, students should not wait for acceptance before applying for financial aid. While there is not a specific deadline for financial aid, students are encouraged to apply as early as possible. Financial aid will not be awarded after the start of classes.


At TEDS, nearly 95% of our students receive some form of financial aid. At Trinity we offer scholarships, grants, rebates, and other aid options to help pay for the cost of schooling. Learn more about what is available below or by contacting the Financial Aid Office at [email protected].
