The Ministry Partnership Match Scholarship is a scholarship that offers a unique opportunity for students receiving financial and spiritual support to receive matching funds from Westminster. This program seeks to help students develop a network of supporters who back your ministry in prayer and finances, as able.

If awarded, Westminster will match funds raised in support for your tuition. The amount Westminster matches has an upper limit, and varies by degree program and campus. Any funds raised beyond the upper limit for the year will be matched in future semesters until the grant expires (in award letter if applicable) or the student graduates. Any outside funds raised can be used towards any outstanding balance. Any leftover funds will be applied to your account for future balances.

All outside donations must be in by the first day of class in the eligible term to be applied to that term. Any funds received after the start of class, will be applied to the next eligible semester.

Donations made directly to you or on your behalf for your tuition are not tax deductible.

Please note that support given in exchange for services rendered cannot legally be matched. Any work that you complete for anyone (including your church) must either be on a volunteer basis, or in addition to your regular payroll. You are not permitted to receive payment in the form of tuition support.
