Concordia Seminary, St. Louis’ Regent Awards are designed to help future pastors overcome financial barriers and fulfill their call to ministry. The Regent Awards consist of eight separate grants available to students who demonstrate great potential, and represent varying amounts of aid, including two grants covering full tuition.

Criteria for consideration of these awards include a superlative academic record, recommendations, faculty interviews, and demonstrated church and community involvement.

Regent grants will be awarded by the Seminary’s scholarship committee, and will be automatically renewed for one pre-vicarage year and one post-vicarage year.

Members of each incoming class in the Master of Divinity. and Residential Alternative Route programs may be eligible for the following awards:

The Martin Scharlemann and Robert Kolb Grants. Two grants will be awarded that include full tuition for up to 45 hours per academic year. Recipients also will receive a cash stipend of $4,500, paid monthly throughout the academic year. Recipients of this aid will not be eligible for other Seminary-based financial aid; however, external awards, grants and aid, including support from a home congregation or district, are permitted and will be credited to the student’s account without reducing the grant.

The Timothy and Titus and Barnabas Grants. Two grants will be awarded that include full tuition for up to 45 hours in an academic year. Recipients of this aid will not be eligible for other Seminary-based financial aid; however, external awards, grants and aid, including support from a home congregation or district, are permitted and will be credited to the student’s account without reducing the grant.

The Urban and Rural Grants. Two grants will be awarded to candidates who competed for, but were not awarded, the previously described Regent grants. Recipients will receive an additional 25 percent discount on the published tuition rate for up to seven credit hours per academic term of the regular academic year.

The Sword of the Spirit Grants. Two grants will be awarded to candidates who competed for, but were not awarded, the previously described Regent grants. Recipients will receive $1,000 per academic year.
