Give To A Student
Our students depend heavily on financial support from scholarships to fund their seminary educations. St. Vladimir's is privileged to have several scholarship funds designated and funded by generous benefactors who want to help needy and gifted students. In 2010, two new need-based scholarships, The Malankara Orthodox Scholarship and the St. Anthony the Great Scholarship, were established.
Need-based scholarships are available to qualified students enrolled at St. Vladimir's Seminary on a full-time basis, as defined in our Academic Catalog. To retain a need-based scholarship, an eligible student must maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA, participate regularly in seminary chapel services, and perform community service assignments commendably.
Need is determined on the basis of the FAFSA and the seminary's Financial Aid Application. Students who receive scholarship assistance from an outside source, as defined above, may still be eligible for a need-based scholarship of a lesser amount, if the outside assistance is less than the scholarship award. The amount of aid from the Seminary will be 100% of the award balance remaining after applying the outside assistance.
Queries about all of our scholarship funds may be directed to the Seminary's new Director of Admissions and Financial Aid, Pdn. Joseph Matusiak, 914-961-8313 x328.
The Father Thomas Hopko Alumni Scholarship Fund
The Father Thomas Hopko Scholarship Fund was established in 2007 to provide financial aid to the sons and daughters of SVS alumni who are enrolled in any of the Seminary's academic degree programs. At the end of June 30, 2010, $59,078.5 had been received from 72 separate donors. Our goal for this scholarship fund is $100,000.
Protopresbyter Thomas Hopko was Dean of St Vladimir's Seminary from 1993–2003 and served on the faculty as professor of Dogmatic Theology for almost forty years. For decades, he has left an indelible mark of commitment to the truth of the gospel on students and thousands of individuals.
Anyone can contribute to this scholarship fund. Even the smallest gift will enable us to reach our goal. Your earmarked donation will honor Fr. Thomas, who in his retirement continues to actively teach, preach, and write.
Donors also may contribute to other SVS scholarship funds, listed here. During the economic downturn, our seminarians particularly welcome your gifts.
