Maranatha provides a limited number of scholarships for its Seminary students. You can request a scholarship below! We are happy to assist you in applying for scholarships and grants from other third-party providers.
With the exception of the Graduate Assistant Program, please be aware that the Scholarships may not be posted to your account until approximately eight weeks after your classes begin.
We desire to encourage pastors and others in vocational ministry who either have not had the opportunity for advanced education or who desire to continue their education or take additional coursework for personal enrichment. Therefore, Maranatha Baptist Seminary offers senior pastors, full-time assistant and youth pastors, full-time missionaries, full-time evangelists, full-time Christian camp workers and full-time Christian School teachers six additional hours of masters level education (after the Test Drive Scholarship) at a 50% tuition discount; you must pay the normal comprehensive fees. If the recipient’s church has Maranatha Baptist Seminary in its budget for at least $50 a month, he will receive the remainder of the master’s program at a 25% tuition discount. For purposes of this scholarship, “full-time” means that the individual works and is paid for a minimum of 35 hours per week for at least nine months of the year in a church, Christian school, or ministry.
