Each admitted applicant will receive at minimum (a) a Merit Tuition Scholarship and (b) either a Princeton Doctoral Fellowship or the George S. Green Fellowship for a period of up to five consecutive years of full-time study.
In addition, a special Research Assistantship is made available to each student during the first year of study. During years two through five each student is guaranteed at least one opportunity per year to serve as a Teaching Assistant or a Teaching Fellow. These assistantships, if accepted, significantly enhance the overall value of the student’s annual financial award package.
Two Trustees Merit Scholarships are awarded annually to applicants whose applications are judged to be of a superior quality. Further, an (unfurnished) apartment (size dependent on availability) will be reserved for each admitted applicant in campus housing and will be made available for up to five consecutive years or for the duration of the student’s PhD program, whichever comes first. Single students may choose instead to live in one of the residence halls. In either case, the housing is heavily subsidized and thus represents a substantial enhancement of the overall admissions package.
Princeton Theological Seminary offers generous support for PhD students. More information about Doctoral-level Financial Aid is available here.
