Full & Partial Tuition Scholarships

In addition to the substantial non-competitive scholarships awarded to Truett students, the Seminary also offers a number of competitive scholarships covering 75% to 100% tuition for select incoming students who have shown outstanding academic prowess, leadership potential, and ministry experience. All incoming students are encouraged to complete the Truett Scholarship Application in order to be considered for a competitive scholarship award.

By completing the Truett Scholarship Application, incoming students will be considered for the full and partial tuition scholarships listed below. Scholarship awards are determined by the Truett Scholarship Committee with consideration given to applicants who meet the specific qualifications for each scholarship.

The 2020-2021 scholarship application will be available in September. To be notified of the application's availability, sign up here.


Scholarship Application Deadlines & Process:

Priority Deadline: December 1
Final Deadline: March 1

In order to be considered for a scholarship award, both the student's scholarship application and the student's application for admittance (including all materials, references, transcripts, etc.) must be completed by the applicable deadline.

Scholarship applicants who intend to enroll in the fall semester following their admission will be given priority for full scholarships. Students who intend to enroll in the spring semester following their admission are eligible to apply; however, full tuition scholarship funds will not be distributed until the fall semester following their enrollment. Any student who is awarded a full tuition scholarship and defers his or her enrollment will forfeit the full tuition scholarship.
