Financial Aid

SFTS provides financial aid assistance to approximately 85% of our MDiv, MATS, and SFTS/GTU/MA students.
Seminary education is an investment in your future and it is essential to have a realistic assessment of how you will pay for it. This guide will assist you in understanding the various forms of financial aid available. It is important to us to work with you to help make your graduate theological education possible.

SFTS offers a variety of ways to assist you with graduate program costs for our masters degree programs, through academic-merit scholarships and need-based grants, as well as the federal student loan program. We urge you to schedule an appointment with one of our staff for a personal conversation if you have any thoughts or questions. We're here for you.

New students applying to SFTS can request financial aid applications through the Admissions Office. Contact Associate Director of Admissions Operations, Isai Garcia at 415-451-2831 or

Our admissions team and international student support office welcome your questions and look forward to helping you make a smooth transition to study at SFTS.
