    Financial Aid-Fellowships


    The Graduate School is eager to support students as they contribute original research in Old Testament, New Testament, Church History, and Theological Studies.  The Graduate School offers two kinds of travel support - Travel to Professional Meetings and Travel to Support Doctoral Research.

    Travel to Professional Meetings

    Eligibility: The applicant must be formally registered for at least one credit hour at Baylor University during the semester when the presentation is made. Summer request can be based on fall registration. This program is designed to support presentation of findings of graduate-student research, artistic performance, etc. The program is not intended to support recruitment activities, attendance at meetings without presentation of scholarship, costs of publication, or costs of conducting research.

    Award: Two awards of $300 are available each year (June 1-May 31 of the following calendar year). Any one award may not exceed $300. However, students may request less than $300, thereby possibly allowing support for more than two meetings in a year. The award is paid by check directly to the graduate student.

    Travel to Support Doctoral Research

    Eligibility: The applicant must be formally registered for at least one credit hour at Baylor University during the semester of travel. Summer request can be based on fall registration. The student's dissertation proposal must be formally approved by the program at the time of application.

    Award: The Graduate School will match funds with the student's department, up to $300. A doctoral student is eligible for one such award during her/his studies at Baylor University.
