New scholarships at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary

New Multicultural and MDiv Connect scholarships at AMBS!

The Multicultural Church Scholarship is for students who are currently serving in or preparing for ministry assignments in a multicultural context and/or who belong to historically underrepresented racial or ethnic groups within the Mennonite Church. Each year, this award will provide a limited number of 100-percent tuition grants to full-time students beginning a master’s program, or a limited number of 75-percent tuition grants to part-time students beginning a master’s program.

The MDiv Connect Student Scholarship provides a limited number of 75-percent tuition grants to students beginning the Master of Divinity (MDiv) Connect program.

Recipients of either scholarship can reside anywhere in the U.S. or Canada and do not need to move to our campus in Indiana to pursue seminary studies. They may receive these scholarships for the stated length of their academic program by meeting certain conditions. Applicants must be from the U.S. or Canada and be a member in good standing of a congregation that is affiliated with Mennonite World Conference or a related Anabaptist group.

The application deadline for these scholarships is March 1. Applicants must have been admitted to AMBS by that date to be considered for scholarships, so it’s a good idea to start the application process as soon as possible.

Creating these scholarships is one way in which we are working to increase accessibility to graduate-level Anabaptist theological and leadership education for students of diverse traditions, ethnicities and racial identities — wherever they may be located. (We also offer various additional scholarships; see ambs.edu/scholarships to learn more.)
