TMU Fund

Advancing The Master’s University’s Highest Priority

The TMU Fund is the University’s unrestricted annual fund that represents an ongoing investment in the University’s highest priority: Improving affordability for every TMU student so that we can execute our mission.

The baseline goal upon which all other ambitions are built is to make The Master’s University affordable for all students. We would like students at TMU to experience their education fully, without having to work additional jobs to cover tuition bills. Our desire is for Alumni to be able to transition to their careers when they graduate, unsaddled by debilitating sums of debt. TMU’s mission necessitates that we seriously address affordability, allowing our students and their families to focus on educational possibilities at TMU rather than a prohibitive price tag.

  • More than 90% of students at TMU rely on scholarship funds in order to attend.
  • The TMU Fund subsidizes the cost of tuition for its students.
  • Your gift equips young men and women for spiritual service and leadership.

In short, the TMU Fund invests in The Master’s University’s most critical ministry opportunity – its students.

The primary group of donors who contribute largely to the TMU Fund is the Chancellor’s Circle. Learn more about what it means to be a member.

MacArthur Endowment

The MacArthur Endowment provides scholarship assistance for TMU students. The endowment’s purpose represents the heart of Dr. John MacArthur to make TMU’s biblical education affordable to those who would otherwise not be able to obtain it due to financial constraints. The endowment funds several of TMU’s most prestigious scholarships given to students annually, including Founders’ Scholarship and Provosts’ Scholarship.

These scholarship funds seek to impact the nations for Jesus Christ by providing financial assistance to worthy underprivileged students, minority students exhibiting leadership aptitude, and students who evidence the desire to advance the gospel worldwide.

The scholarship aid may be used to offset the cost of tuition, room and board, books, fees, and other expenses that otherwise qualify as educational expenses under U.S. government loan programs. Students receiving aid from the Founders’ Scholarship and Provost’s Scholarship are selected by the President and Provost, respectively.

Founder's Fund

Bridging The Gap

The Founders’ Fund provides scholarship assistance for new, transfer, and continuing TMU students. Funds are specially designated for those who have been admitted into the University but are unable to enroll due to a funding “gap” between the student’s financial package and what their family can afford.

These scholarship funds seek to impact the nations for Jesus Christ by enabling students who have been affirmed as worthy candidates for admittance into TMU, including affirmation from home church leaders and educators, and have demonstrated faithfulness to Christ and learning.

How Founders’ Fund Scholarships Are Awarded

• Donors give to the Founders’ Fund knowing that their gifts will help students whose ability to afford TMU is out of reach. • Potential scholarship recipients are prequalified through the admissions process and their history of academic success. • Those who have a funding gap must submit the Founders’ Scholarship Application to the executive committee. • The executive committee evaluates students based on their faithfulness to Christ and learning, affirmation from church leaders and educators, and financial need. • The committee awards scholarships toward the funding gap with preference to those who demonstrate a need for financial assistance. • The scholarship aid may be used to offset the cost of tuition, room and board, books, fees, and other expenses that otherwise qualify as educational expenses under U.S. government loan programs.
