At Austin Seminary a majority of the costs of preparing pastors comes from the support of faithful individuals and churches who are committed to supporting all elements of our campus and community. As the campus has evolved, it has maintained a combination of function and beauty through visionary gifts and annual contributions. The support of alumni/ae, friends, and churches enables Austin Seminary to provide our students with a rigorous theological education and dynamic residential community found nowhere else.
Why give to Austin Seminary?
Tuition - Keeping costs low for students.
At Austin Seminary, student financial aid remains the number one priority in our budget. The average cost of providing an education for a Master of Divinity student for one year is $30,000. Yet our annual tuition for that same student is only $11,400. To keep tuition affordable and balance the budget, we rely on your faithful gifts that allow talented, caring people to heed the call to serve, regardless of their financial situation. Austin Seminary tuition remains reasonable because it is supplemented by gifts to the Annual Fund and from the proceeds of endowments set up by generous individuals, churches, and foundations.
Faculty - Attracting the best and brightest minds.
The outstanding faculty of Austin Seminary thrives on the intellectual challenges and spiritual growth inherent in the Seminary's work. Close working relationships between students and faculty engender a mutual respect that often develops into collegial networks and lifelong friendships. Eighteen resident faculty serve the Seminary. Your gifts provide compensation to attract and retain these caring and knowledgeable professors, and resources to help them teach.
