Finances shouldn’t be an obstacle for any student who is called to ministry and whose gifts have been recognized by the church. We are committed to making sound theological training accessible by maintaining affordable tuition rates and offering a robust financial aid program.

GI Replacement Grant

3 + 1  Scholarship Program

The 3 + 1 Scholarship Program is designed for fully online students through RTS Global. When qualified students pay for and complete their first three courses within a year, they receive fourth course for free. The scholarship does not have any time limit, but remains valid as long as you are a student at RTS Global.

Like all scholarships at RTS, the 3 + 1 program may not be used in conjunction with any other scholarships. Scholarship only applies to tuition, not course fees.

To qualify for the 3 + 1 program, students must be admitted to RTS Global and complete the financial aid application.

All scholarships are limited to five years for the MDiv or three years for the MA except where otherwise noted.
