Financial Aid

It is our desire to enable all students who attend MB Seminary to receive quality graduate theological education and be equipped to reach Canada and the world for Christ. With generous donations from donors within the Canadian Mennonite Brethren constituency, it is our goal to provide funding that recognizes academic excellence and/or financial need. All applications will be given serious consideration. For more information, contact Brian Cooper, MB Seminary Director of Student Development.

Financial Aid is provided in various ways:

1) MB Seminary Awards – Through the generosity of alumni, individual members of our MB constituency, and provincial conferences the seminary provides endowment awards, e.g. R Epp Family, Nathan Paul Toews, ICOMB, based on financial need and potential for ministry in the church or missions. Funds awarded are divided between the Fall and Spring semester within the academic year and will be applied directly to student accounts.

When allocating funds, new and returning full-time students (9+ credit hours per semester) at our Langley or Winnipeg campuses will be given preference over part-time students. Funds may be available for new and returning part-time students as well. Requests will be processed in the order in which they were received. The student must be enrolled in a degree program at MB Seminary in Langley or Winnipeg and maintain the GPA applicable for your program (minimum 2.5).

Financial Aid Deadline for 2017-2018 is JUNE 1, 2017

2) Leadership Training Matching Grant (LTMG) – The Canadian Conference of MB Churches (CCMBC) partners with our congregations in discerning and developing the leaders of tomorrow. CCMBC is committed to helping new leaders receive the education they need to succeed in ministry. CCMBC partners with the local church, each providing 25% of tuition. Students are responsible for the remaining 50% of their tuition costs. This applies to students enrolled in a degree program in Langley (ACTS Seminaries) and Winnipeg (Graduate School of Theology and Ministry at CMU).
