Our aim is to enable these students to finish seminary without hindrances that they might faithfully preach Christ to the world. The scholarship provides full tuition, fees, and a cost-of-living stipend of $3,000 per semester for single men and $6,000 per semester for married men for up to 8 consecutive semesters (4 years). Tech fee, Shepherds Conference, insurance, or optional fees are not included
