Additional Financing Sources

The Financial Aid Office maintains a list of some external scholarships sources. References are available on demand to accepted and registered students.

EDS does secure several scholarships from specific external organizations such as the Society for the Increase of Ministry (SIM), the DuBose scholarship fund, the Daughters of the King, The Mercer scholarship fund, and others. These scholarship opportunities will be advertised by the financial aid office throughout the year.

Corporations, foundations, service organizations, religious groups, and others sponsor educational assistance programs. These outside grants can be based on any number of criteria and usually require a separate application to be sent directly to the sponsoring agency.

A limited number of on campus jobs are available at EDS. Some jobs are funded by the Federal Work Study program.

We also recommend that students ask for financial support from their parish and diocese of origin.
