Master’s Level Scholarships and Grants
Mercer Theology Study Grant Compare the cost of theological education with costs at other seminaries and divinity schools and you will be surprised at the affordability of a McAfee education. Mercer University, supporting churches, and our educational partners are making a significant commitment to underwrite much of the cost of studying at the McAfee School of Theology. Every student at McAfee receives significant financial assistance which brings down the tuition to well below the national average for ATS accredited schools. The Mercer Theology Study Grant covers the majority of the student’s tuition. For 2011-2012 the amount of that grant is $500.00 per credit hour.
Merit-Based Scholarship Levels
