Though I felt clearly called to come to seminary and pursue ordination in the PC(USA), I felt very anxious about going into debt. Finding out that I had been offered a scholarship from SFTS gave me the peace of mind I needed to take the leap and answer the call to ministry. I’m so appreciative of the support from all the organizations that have given so generously to me.

The scholarship experience here was amazing! The people were very friendly, informative, clear and helpful. Coming from a country [the Dominican Republic] with limited resources and as an international student with no access to US federal grants, a full scholarship to SFTS made it possible for me to pursue my studies here.
