John Paul II Scholarship

The John Paul II Scholars at the Augustine Institute are faithful, gifted, and vibrant potential leaders being trained to make a significant and lasting contribution to the New Evangelization. Enjoying a full scholarship for the Graduate School of the Augustine Institute, the John Paul II Scholars also work as apostolic interns for one of the Institute’s programs or for another Catholic apostolate in Denver. As paid student workers, the John Paul II Scholars hone their skills for the apostolate under the direction of a mentor and, in some cases, also a field supervisor. Once their two-year course of studies and training has come to an end, they will have the Institute’s nation-wide network of ecclesial partners as resources for placement.

Put out into the deep.
-Luke 5:4

Application Requirements

Our Admissions Committee seeks prospective students who demonstrate both an academic and spiritual readiness to complete a master’s degree in theology.   

Our minimum requirement is a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university. The committee also evaluates the candidate’s writing sample, transcript, letters of recommendation, and overall presentation of the application materials.  

Applicants demonstrate the maturity of their faith through frequent involvement in the Church, ongoing education in the Faith (formal or informal), and letters of recommendation that testify to the candidate’s consistent life of Christian virtue and devotion.  

The Admissions Committee also strives to affirm that the prospective students’ future goals are compatible with the educational pillars of the Augustine Institute.

International Applicants

In addition to the checklist requirements, foreign nationals must do one of the following:

Submit your TOEFL scores (Test of English as a Foreign Language) with your application (Note: The TOEFL is a very costly test).

OR

Request that your admissions essay be considered as evidence of competency in the English language.

You will be evaluated on your English competency by the Admission’s Committee in order to determine your capacity for success in graduate studies. It is often the case that foreign nationals for whom English is a second language are recommended to pursue coursework on a non-degree seeking basis.

*On Campus Applications
At this time, the Augustine Institute is not a SEVIS authorized school, and therefore is not authorized to issue the I-20 form, which is required for your student visa application.  The Department of Homeland Security requires a information protocol on nonimmigrant students and exchange visitors to be collected during the course of their stay.  Receiving a SEVIS authorization requires a great deal of resources and responsibility that we cannot afford at this time but may be able to achieve in the coming years as the graduate school grows.  You may wish to read further here.
