Scholarships for New Students

Truett Seminary's scholarships are made possible by the Baptist General Convention of Texas, Cooperative Baptist Fellowship and numerous other generous donors. Scholarship values are limited to 93 attempted hours total including transferred credit, credit by exam, and failed courses. Baptist students and students in the joint degree programs may be eligible to receive tuition scholarships beyond 93 attempted hours. Married couples attending Truett together may also be eligible to receive additional scholarships.

Full Tuition Scholarships

100% Tuition scholarship for the Master of Divinity degree at Truett Seminary. The scholarship will cover the tuition of 93 attempted hours of the M.Div. program at Truett.

Matching Scholarship

Baylor University will match on a dollar-for-dollar basis, not to exceed $1,000 in an academic year, scholarship funds given to Baptist students from a Baptist church, state Baptist convention or Baptist-affiliated program. Duly authorized Baptist church leaders must certify a statement for each check in order to request matching funds. Checks and statements must be received by the Cashier's Office in order for matching funds to be applied. Matching funds are available for fall and spring semesters for full-time students in good standing. Matching funds are not available for the summer term.

Additional Scholarships

Prior to accessing, requesting, or completing any scholarship applications, new students must have admitted status (accepted to Truett and paid the enrollment deposit). IMPORTANT! Scholarship type is denoted after the award amount for each scholarship and could affect the amount you receive.
