Aid Programs

The Financial Aid Program at Payne is based on three areas of support. All three areas are utilized to provide the maximum possible assistance for the student based on demonstrated financial need.

1. Federal Financial Aid is only available to students taking a minimum of six hours and increases at full-time status of nine hours or more.  Students enrolled in the M.Div. program on at least a half-time basis may be eligible for the Federal Stafford Loan Program and the Supplemental Student Loan. The Financial Aid Office is in charge of administrating these programs.

2. The African Methodist Episcopal Church’s General Scholarship Fund may make an annual contribution for each A.M.E. residential student enrolled in the Seminary during the Fall semester.

3. Funds from A.M.E. Episcopal Districts may be given in support of their students, as well as other outside scholarship resources.
