Financial Aid

The Financial Aid Office at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary is committed to making education affordable. We desire that each student called to pursue training for ministry be able to do so regardless of financial means.

We will assist you in financing your education by offering institutional scholarships, connecting you with outside sources of aid, and answering questions about the financial aid process.
