(Certificate, 36-credit Masters Degree, 60-credit Masters Degree, Professional Diploma, Doctor of Ministry, or Ph.D.) at
Fordham University’s Graduate School of Religion and Religious Education. The range of financial assistance offered

(1) available funds and (2) the number of students requesting funds.

Requirements:
1. Complete the General Scholarship Application form.
2. Students must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) every school year. FAFSA on the Web allows
you to complete and submit your financial aid application electronically. The FAFSA must be filled out at
http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/. Students earning a salary directly from their place of employment or who may be receiving
assistance from their spouse must complete the FAFSA. In addition, residents of New York State must file a Tuition
Assistance Program (TAP) application.
      Note: Students who are not US citizens or permanent residents are not required to file the FAFSA with the
      federal government, but must submit the General Scholarship Application form to the Graduate School of
      Religion and Religious Education. International Students must also attach a copy of their Certificate of
      Eligibility Application & Affidavit of Support to the General Scholarship Application form.
      Note: Religious Priests and Religious Sisters are not required to complete the FAFSA but must submit the
      General Scholarship Application form to the Graduate School of Religion and Religious Education. (Diocesan
      Priests must complete the FAFSA)

Religious Education by May 1 for the Fall Term and November 15 for the Spring Term.
