The Propel Scholarship

Propel staff, volunteers, and ministry leaders that are accepted into the M.A. in Evangelism and Leadership, or enroll as a special student with the intention of becoming degree-seeking students, receive a reduction in tuition.

  • Self-paced Propel students who enroll in the degree receive a 25% tuition discount.
  • If Propel gathers a group of 15 or more students who take the classes at the same time and progress through the degree together, then each member of the that group will receive any extra 10% discount for a total of a 35% tuition discount. (If at any time the cohort drops below 15 students, the discount would revert to 25%.)

Visit the Financial Aid Office for more details on tuition and aid.
