Scholarships and Financial Aid

Providing resources for equipping historically underrepresented groups.


Southeastern is committed to equipping groups who have been historically underrepresented on our campus to serve the church and fulfill the Great Commission. Our financial aid resources represent part of a holistic effort to support current and future students in an attempt to make our campus look more like the kingdom.

The Kingdom Diversity Scholarship is comprised of several scholarship funds, including an endowment in honor of President Daniel L. Akin. In addition, for your convenience the Financial Aid office has compiled a variety of scholarships facilitated by other organizations.
