Full and Partial Tuition Scholarships
Truett Seminary awards a number of scholarships to incoming students, ranging up to the full cost of tuition. All incoming students are encouraged to complete the Truett Scholarship Application in order to be considered for a full or partial tuition scholarship award.
Accepted students are welcome and encouraged to utilize the Partner Scholarship resources provided in order to request additional scholarship funds from their church. These funds will be deposited directly into the student’s account to defray any remaining costs after Truett’s scholarship funds are awarded.
Baptist 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.
Please note that the majority of these scholarships are designed for continuing students to apply. Only a few are made available to new students. Please revisit this page after you’ve completed your first year of seminary. IMPORTANT! Scholarship type is denoted after the award amount for each scholarship and could affect the amount you receive.
