In addition to the welcome scholarship of £27, 500 that each successful applicant receives, the OCCA is delighted to be able to offer further scholarships for outstanding applicants from any region around the world.

These scholarships range from full tuition and a living stipend, to smaller awards of partial tuition.


Being part of the OCCA family for the past 9 months has been a truly life changing experience. I don’t think there are many other programmes of study where you get to see many people putting their trust in Jesus!”
Emily, UK

No words can describe how truly blessed I have been by the level of academic excellence of the teaching lavishly poured into us at OCCA and by the personal integrity, wisdom and humility of our professors and tutors.”
Mari, Russia

This year has turned out to be so much more than I ever expected, not just because of the theoretical training, which has indeed surpassed my expectations, but also because I have grown in many areas of my life. More than that, I have gained best friends for a lifetime and beyond.”
Gerson, Spain

Gaining structured theological knowledge has been a major highlight for me this year and has helped me to be confident and bold in responding to tough questions such as; ‘Why would God allow suffering?’, ‘Are science and faith compatible?’, ‘Why trust the Bible?’, and ‘How can God have a son?”
Allan, India

I loved the community! It was great to have a small group of people listening, praying, and caring for each other. Seeing people come to Christ was a highlight.”
Rachel, Uganda

This year at OCCA has been incredible for me. I feel like I have learned and grown on so many levels. It has been such a privilege to learn from such an international and diverse group of outstanding people all committed to boldly sharing the gospel.”
David, South Africa


Although there is no guarantee of receiving a scholarship, we encourage applications to OCCA regardless of financial circumstances. Scholarship decisions will be made in the early summer on the basis of your application and acceptance to an OCCA Programme.

There is no separate scholarship application. If you wish to be considered for a scholarship, you must apply to the OCCA by the final application deadline.
