MOODY SCHOLARSHIPS AND GRANTS

Each year Moody awards numerous scholarships and grants to students who are both worthy and in need of such an award. Moody is reliant upon the sacrificial gifts of our donors to directly fund every scholarship and grant.

Timothy Scholarship


The Timothy Scholarship is a special partnership between the student, the student's home church and Moody, where each entity pays 1/3 of tuition. To be eligible for this scholarship, students must be meeting our standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress.

Application Process

 1. Apply for Timothy Scholarship
Download the application and follow the instructions to complete and submit.

 2. Mail Application and Check to Moody.
Moody's Financial Aid Office looks over your application. Applications indicating your church's commitment are due prior to the start of classes each semester as indicated on the application.

 3. Moody matches gift and pays up to 1/3 of tuition.

 4. Student pays final 1/3 (or remaining balance).
The remaining amount will be covered by other payment options.

Need and Merit-Based Scholarships


Institutional Scholarships are awarded annually, up to $3,000 per academic year, and are based on a combination of need and merit. To receive these scholarships, students must enroll in at least 6 credit hours per semester in a degree-seeking program (certificate and non-degree programs are ineligible), and must be meeting our standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress.

  •  Need is determined from your completion of the FAFSA
