Scholarships and Grants

Financial Aid at RTS Orlando

The financing of a RTS degree is, above all, a trusting in and a reliance on God’s provision. Students finance their studies through their personal resources, the support of their home church, family and friends, and through RTS financial aid.

RTS works intentionally to keep tuition and fees affordable through the generous support of the church and friends of the seminary. It is not uncommon for students to graduate without incurring further debt for their seminary education.

What scholarships are available?

Students may apply for any one of the following scholarships:

Church Partnership

 Through the Church Partnership Program, RTS matches church contributions up to 1/3 of tuition. Ideally, a student’s church contributes 1/3, RTS matches it, and the student covers the final 1/3.

RTS Grant

 The RTS Grant provides financial assistance to full-time students with demonstrated financial need.

Ministry Partnership

RTS enjoys partnerships with RUF, Cru, Pioneers, MTW, Young Life, and Covenant College. Students who have an affiliation with these ministries may be eligible for related scholarships.
