Scholarships and Grants

Financial Aid at RTS Houston

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.

Ministry Partnership

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

RTS Grant

The RTS Grant provides financial assistance to eligable students with demonstrated financial need.

Spouse Scholarship

This is a 100% tuition scholarship for the spouse of a full-time student to earn an M.Div, MABS, MATS, or a Certificate. The scholarship is awarded to the spouse earning the degree with equal or fewer credit hours. For all Distance Education courses, regardless of degree program, it is a 50% tuition scholarship.
