Covenant Presidential Scholarships

Presidential Scholarships are offered by North Park Theological Seminary for the purpose of helping selected degree-seeking students prepare for vocational ministry in the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC). These awards are intended to help full- and part-time students pursue and complete studies at the denominational seminary of the ECC as quickly as possible. Presidential Scholarships are funded in part by donors to the Seminary Annual Scholarship Fund.

Presidential Scholarships vary in amount, and the most generous awards are only offered to full-time students at the Chicago campus.

Applicants for Presidential Scholarships are considered based on call or intention to serve in vocational ministry through the ECC, previous academic record, references, and other criteria, in addition to the scholarship application. More details are available on the Presidential Scholarship application form.

Mosaic Leadership Scholarship

Mosaic Leadership Scholarships are designed to support leaders with multicultural or multiethnic backgrounds, who desire to become further equipped through theological education to strengthen the mosaic tapestry of the church. These awards recognize degree-seeking men and women who have demonstrated, through previous leadership, the potential for significantly expanded and more effective work and ministry.

The Mosaic Leadership Scholarship may be awarded alongside the Nyvall or Lund Scholarship, some Presidential Scholarships, and/or need-based grants. For more information or to apply, please review the special Mosaic Leadership Scholarship application.
