NTS Scholarship/Grant Application & Other Resources

Scholarships and/or instituional aid are available to all accepted degree-seeking students of the seminary. If you are seeking only a certificate or diploma, you do not qualify. Prior to March 1 for the Fall semester and November 1 for the Spring semester, new students must submit all application materials - application, references, and transcripts - and be accepted to the seminary to qualify. In addition, all students (new, continuing, and returning) must complete the NTS General Scholarship/Grant Application by those deadlines every year in order to qualify.

Scholarships are annual awards that must be applied for every year. Download or view the following PDFs:
