Costs and affordability

It is our goal to keep our base tuition rates low so we can make theological education affordable and accessible for a diverse body of students.


Thanks to many generous donors, AMBS is pleased to offer a wide range of scholarships. 

Financial aid

All admitted students are eligible to apply for AMBS need-based financial aid. Need-based financial aid is distributed according to demonstrated financial need, with higher amounts of aid given to students with greater need. 

Church matching grants

Our church matching grants are an expression of our commitment to make theological and leadership education affordable and accessible for students across the church and to partner with the wider church in investing in current and future leaders.
