JST Financial Awards

As a private educational institution, the Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara University (JST) recognizes that many students need financial assistance beyond their own available resources in order to meet the cost of a graduate education. To assist students in meeting their academic goals, JST offers JST Financial Awards in the form of tuition grants and special scholarships.

  • These awards are offered to students on an annual basis
  • All scholarship and grant monies are tuition-restricted
  • All decisions regarding scholarships and grants are made on a racially and sexually non-discriminatory basis
  • Students must be enrolled for a minimum of 9 units in a degree program to be considered for JST Financial Awards
  • Special Students who are seeking admission to a degree program will be considered for a JST Financial Award if funding is available.

Awarding Criteria

  • Students must be admitted to JST before they are considered
  • All students who complete an application will be considered
  • Tuition grants and special scholarships are awarded on the basis of financial need and excellent academic achievement and/or potential
  • Preference will be given to students enrolled in JST degree programs
  • Graduate Theological Union (GTU) Common MA students who are affiliated with JST are encouraged to apply for JST Financial Awards.

In addition to JST Financial Awards, all lay or non-religious US citizens or eligible non-citizens are required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Click here for further information about Federal Financial Aid.
