Scholarships & Grants
Providing scholarships to God-called men and women is important to our mission and operation. A quality education is costly and can saddle ministers with the burden of debt. Thus, scholarships can reap a rich harvest in the lives of well-prepared ministers and healthy mission-directed churches.
Establishing or giving to a scholarship can result in the extension of a person’s vision or kingdom-centered cause, as they are often established by a person, family, or group of persons who wish to honor or memorialize someone—naming the fund in their honor/memory. In this way, starting a scholarship is a way of passing on a mantle for Christian service; it is perhaps one of the best ways to link a legacy with the future of the Church.
You can give to three types of scholarships:
This is a very popular choice among Kingdom investors, because an endowed scholarship is a gift that keeps on giving. The principal is invested, while 5% of the investment value is awarded as a scholarship. Endowed scholarships are often established and funded by a person, family or group of persons such as a local church, discipleship class or district. The scholarship may be named to honor or memorialize a special person, and criteria for awarding the scholarship may be set by the scholarship originator(s). Starting an endowed scholarship is a way of passing on a mantle for Christian service; it is perhaps one of the best ways to link a legacy with the future of the Church.

The PLG funds the best and brightest from around the world. These funds give a scholarship to a few of the top students from each of the Nazarene universities and colleges. The outstanding students then come to NTS and help set the bar high for other students, and go on to serve the church in ministry around the world.
Annually funded scholarships have the ability to be received and used the same year with no waiting period. The funds received go directly to a student who meets the established criteria.
Establishing an annually funded scholarship provides an immediate way to assist current students, as funds can be received and awarded within the same year. This type of fund requires a minimum of $5,000 be given annually for at least three years.
