The Kern Family Foundation Scholarship

Full-tuition Scholarship to Master of Divinity Students

Denver Seminary is proud to partner with The Kern Family Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides full-tuition scholarships to Master of Divinity students committed to lifelong service in pastoral ministry in the United States. Recipients also receive "value-added" benefits both during and after the seminary experience, including involvement in a leadership network that provides opportunities for professional growth and access to specialized resources.

Work Study

At Denver Seminary we disburse our federal work study funds to our various institutional departments. Those departments then advertise work study positions alongside other available on-campus positions. The student must be at least at half-time status (5+ credits/semester) to be eligible for work study, and most on-campus jobs require at least full-time status (9+ credits/semester). Exceptions to this rule are interim terms (Intersession & Summer) and the semester prior to graduation. Those who are hired will see work study funds disbursed to them through a monthly paycheck and not part of their Award Letter.
