Hide Profile

The Society for the Promotion of Theological Education at Harvard University was founded in 1816, and designed to foster the teaching of theology at Harvard and to provide financial assistance to students. The Society raised the money to build Divinity Hall which was dedicated in 1826. From 1824 to 1831 it took general direction of the Divinity School at Harvard. In 1831 it severed its official connection with the University and was reorganized as the Society for Promoting Theological Education. It continues to provide financial assistance to meritorious Divinity School students.
