Boston College School of Theology Scholarships

POSTED February 3, 2022

Boston College School of Theology and Ministry is enriched each year by the presence of many students who have previously served in a CVN member program. In recognition of all that these students add to our community as well as acknowledging the financial barriers to pursuing graduate studies, we offer a 75% scholarship to any applicant who has participated in a CVN program in the last five years. 

I also want to draw your attention to our dual degree programs, which pair an M.A. in theology and ministry with one of three other Boston College graduate degrees: social work, mental health counseling, and business administration. These programs tend to be very popular with former volunteers.

We are still accepting applications for fall 2022. For more information go to How to Apply – School of Theology and Ministry – Boston College (bc.edu)
