Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is it affordable?

    All students receive a Taylor scholarship of $6,000, making the entire two year program only $12,000. Financial aid is available.  Ministry partners may also grant up to $6,000 in scholarships for residents in their program, cutting the total cost in half to only $6,000.

  • When can I start?

    You can begin the next MAM course immediately after your acceptance. The onboarding dates for a residency program are January, June, and September.

  • Am I able to have a part-time job outside of my residency?

    Yes. In fact, we encourage it as a way to make ends meet. However, as you arrange your schedule, you will need to prioritize the hours of your residency and find part-time work that can accommodate that schedule. All of our residents have been able to make this arrangement work.

  • Am I eligible to apply to the residency if I’m married?

    Yes. We have married residents in the program.

  • Is this program online or residential?

    The entire program is face to face, meeting on Thursday afternoons with Taylor Faculty at various sites in the greater Indianapolis and Fort Wayne area.
