New Students who do not have an established GPA often find it difficult to obtain scholarships for their first semester of study. In order to remedy this, Southwestern has created a New Student Scholarship for those attending in their first semester. Additionally, there are scholarship opportunities from external sources that may be utilized.  Information on non-seminary financial resources is available to prospective students. Some state conventions and foundations offer scholarships to students from their state. Students may contact the convention and/or foundation in their home state to make inquiry.

Requirements:  You must be a first-semester student at Southwestern Seminary or the College at Southwestern and enrolled full-time (9 hours for graduate students, 12 hours for undergraduate students, and enrollment in seminars for post-graduate students).

In accepting this scholarship, students agree to abide by all moral commitments of SWBTS and to be in chapel every day unless providentially hindered or have an agreement with the dean of students based on unusual circumstances.
