Truett Alumni Association Scholarship

This scholarship, endowed by generous Truett alumni, is intended to help defray the cost of seminary education for outstanding M.Div or MACM students at George W. Truett Theological Seminary. Applicants should have completed at least 42 hours of seminary coursework by the end of the current semester, be currently enrolled at Truett, and have plans to register for the subsequent fall semester. Recipients will be announced in April. Selected students will be awarded $1,000. All applications should be submitted to the Truett Financial Manager, Dean's Suite (Room 105).

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.
