Scholarships for Religious Studies Majors

Worried that you will be unable to pay for your religious studies education? Have faith – there are many scholarships available to students just like you! No matter your denomination, you can find awards managed by foundations and church and community organizations, such as Disciples Home Missions and the United Church of Christ, that fund memorial and private scholarships for students pursuing a degree in religious studies. Many of these scholarships range from $1,000 to as much as $23,000 to cover tuition and expenses for students of theology or religious studies. Eligibility varies and can include a minimum GPA (usually 2.5 - 3.0), financial need or attendance of a particular school. Some scholarships have gender or ethnicity requirements.
