Financial Aid at RTS Washington

In addition to providing a quality theological education, we seek to serve God's kingdom by making this education affordable.  Through the generosity of private donors, individual churches, and ultimately God's grace and provision, the cost of your tuition has already been significantly offset.  Moreover, through partnerships with ministry organizations and supplementary private donations, we are blessed to offer financial aid options to further subsidize tuition costs.  In addition to the information on this page, please take a moment to download our Financial Aid form and review your options.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us at or (703) 448-3393.

What scholarships are available?

Students may apply for any one of the following scholarships:

Church Partnership

 Through the Church Partnership Program, RTS matches church contributions up to 1/3 of tuition. Ideally, a student’s church contributes 1/3, RTS matches it, and the student covers the final 1/3. For details, please read the Church Partnership brochure.

RTS Grant

 The RTS Grant provides financial assistance to full-time students with demonstrated financial need.

Ministry Partnership

RTS enjoys partnerships with ministries such as RUF, Campus Outreach, Cru, Pioneers, MTW, Young Life, and Covenant College Alumni. Students who have an affiliation with these ministries may be eligible for related scholarships.

Spouse Scholarship

This is a 100% tuition scholarship for the spouse of a full-time student to earn an M.Div, MABS, MATS, or a Certificate. The scholarship is awarded to the spouse earning the degree with equal or fewer credit hours. For the MAC (Orlando) program it is a 50% tuition scholarship.
For all Distance Education courses, regardless of degree program, it is a 50% tuition scholarship.
