The SBTC funds scholarships for Southwestern students through the Cooperative Program by sending 55% of undesignated gifts to the Southern Baptist Convention. Through this, the SBTC helps provide the Cooperative Program Scholarship for seminary students who are members of Southern Baptist churches. During the Spring 2024 semester, we are also pleased to offer additional scholarships to members of SBTC churches who are pursuing degrees at Texas Baptist College or Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
