A Search Beyond

In fact, in helping other people we should not coerce obedience from them in small details but only advise them to follow faithfully the dictate of their own conscience.

Watchman Nee

In an effort to provide information about financial resources beyond those offered by FTE, we have developed a directory of financial aid available for undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and postdoctoral studies in theology and religion. The Fund Finder is a tool to help you search through a full listing of support offered by churches, denominations, individuals, academic institutions and organizations.

These resources have been verified with the organizations or individuals offering aid. However, details change continuously, and persons seeking financial aid should confirm availability, requirements and benefits when contacting any of these sources. FTE is not responsible for errors or changes in funding information and in procedures made by funding sources.
