Promise for Tomorrow Scholarships

Catholic Teacher Discount

Saint John’s Seminary offers a 10% tuition remission for eligible teachers in Catholic schools through the Promise for Tomorrow Scholarship Fund. For more information, please contact the director of the program, Dr. Anthony Coleman.

From the generosity of donors in the Boston area, the Archdiocese of Boston has established the Promise for Tomorrow Scholarship Fund to benefit those serving the Church in the Archdiocese of Boston, in parishes, or in other ministries. These scholarships assist MAM/MTS degree students in need of financial assistance.

In addition to need-based aid, the Promise for Tomorrow Scholarship Fund offers two merit-based scholarships. The Promise for Tomorrow Fund awards these two scholarships once a year. These scholarships are:

“Outstanding Lay Service Scholarship” (for the Master of Arts in Ministry degree).

”New Evangelization Scholarship” (for the Master of Theological Studies for the New Evangelization degree).

Please contact Dr. Anthony Coleman if you are interested in applying for a merit-based scholarship.
