Major Scholarship Program Announced at Claremont School of Theology

November 14, 2008

Claremont School of Theology in California this week announced a new comprehensive scholarship program for students entering the school in fall 2009. The University Scholars Awards at Claremont School of Theology is a merit-based scholarship program that provides for 100-percent tuition and fees, an on-campus apartment, books, and a monthly stipend that will be offered for up to eight entering masters-level students.

Full details about the Awards are available at
“This exciting new scholarship program provides the necessary financial support for the best and brightest students entering theological education today,” says Jerry D. Campbell, president of the school. “The Awards will offer a select group of students the highest level of financial resources, so they can take full advantage of what our remarkable faculty offers.”
Students applying for masters-level programs at the school who have a 3.5 cumulative GPA and complete an application for admission by January 30 will be eligible for consideration. Finalists will be invited to Claremont at the school’s expense in February, to interview for the Awards program.
The trustees of Claremont School of Theology recently articulated their intent to transform the school into a small graduate-level university, which includes a school of theology and ministry, to focus on academic disciplines related to religion and ethics. The University Scholars Program is among the first public steps toward realizing this vision.

As an ecumenical and interreligious institution, Claremont School of Theology seeks to instill students with the ethical integrity, religious intelligence, and intercultural understanding necessary to become effective in thought and action as spiritual leaders in the increasingly diverse, multi-religious world of the 21st century.
