Financial Aid

The Franciscan School of Theology offers scholarships based on financial need and on academic merit. Additionally, we offer two special programs for employees of Catholic institutions and professed members of the Secular Franciscan Order. FST participates in the Federal Direct Loan Program, open to US citizens and permanent residents. 


We recommend that applicants begin the financial aid process when they apply for admission. The priority deadline for Fall semester is March 15. The deadline for Spring is November 1. Financial Aid applications submitted after the deadlines will be considered in the order received and according to academic merit, need, and the availability of funds.



The Franciscan School of Theology offers scholarships to incoming full-time degree students. The Mary Stuart Rogers Scholarship is awarded to applicants who have shown exceptional academic achievement in their previous academic work and who demonstrate financial need. Additional need-based scholarships are available.  The terms and amounts vary based on each application, when it is received, and the availability of funds
