Scholarship Opportunity for Religious Education Teachers

August 9, 2016

Seattle University’s School of Theology and Ministry is excited to announce a new scholarship opportunity in partnership with the Archdiocese of Seattle’s Office for Catholic Schools and Seattle University’s College of Education, and through the generosity of the Frost Snyder Foundation.

As of July 2016, three full graduate degree scholarships for a Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies / Education joint degree at Seattle University will be available for Pierce County teachers working within Archdiocese of Seattle
Catholic Schools. Teachers enrolled in this special program will receive a scholarship paying for the full cost of tuition, which is currently valued at $16,632 per year.

This unique degree opportunity will integrate essential courses from Seattle University's School of Theology and Ministry and College of Education, chosen in conjunction with the two Seattle University deans and the Superintendent of Catholic Schools. The graduate cohort will take classes together in the evenings, on the weekends, and where appropriate during the day, while maintaining their current teaching role. This partnership will contribute to building an Archdiocesan infrastructure for a substantive and sustained improvement of religious education in K-12 Catholic schools. The teachers will form a cohort of religious educators, under the supervision of the Superintendent of Catholic Schools, with the intention of strengthening Catholic education in Pierce County.
