Needs Based Scholarship
St Paul’s House of Formation is made possible by Fr. Stephen Gauthier, generous donors who give to support the ministry of the Greenhouse Movement, and students who invest to support the ministry while getting trained.
The student investment fee for St Paul’s House of Formation is $300 per semester, or $1200 for the core certificate (2 years). We decided to set the fee to be about a quarter of the cost of a formal seminary course.
The student investment fee for Saint Paul’s both helps support the cost of the program, and encourages full commitment to the training. We want students to complete the program, and financial investment helps busy students maintain their value and priority for the program.
While holding all of the above about the value of the program, we do not want the student investment fee to be a genuine barrier to receiving training in the five key SPHF areas. Scholarships are designed to enable students to enroll in St. Paul’s who would not be able to do so otherwise.
Anyone with a financial barrier to joining St. Paul’s is welcome to apply for a scholarship.
Only a limited number of scholarships can be awarded. The scholarship committee gives priority to missionaries who live on a fundraised ministry salary, but anyone with a financial need is welcome to apply.
The base student investment fee is $300.
The scholarship offered to students is a $75 discount, reducing the investment fee to $225.
If the $225 student investment fee is still a barrier, the student can suggest another amount they can afford for their student investment fee. The scholarship committee will respond with the final amount offered.
