Baptist Bible Seminary Training Timothys Scholarship

The Training Timothys Scholarship is a powerful matching-tuition benefit. Baptist Bible Seminary will match a financial gift from your church toward tuition costs each semester for up to six semesters.

For this significant savings, the student must be enrolled full-time during the semester the scholarship is awarded. Scholarship money may be used toward fall, spring, and summer semesters for the M.Min. and M.Div. degrees.

The scholarship can bring the tuition for a master's degree to less than $100 per credit hour.

The Training Timothys Scholarship requires the church to provide a matching gift on the student's behalf to the Seminary. This could be drawn from a professional development fund set aside for this purpose.
