TMU Ministry Matching Grant 

(TMU matches up to $2,500)

The Master’s University Ministry Matching Grant (MMG) is designed to encourage Christian organizations (local churches, Christian schools, mission organizations, etc.) whose ministries are consistent with the mission of The Master’s University to provide corporate scholarship support for students attending the university. The Master’s University will match in grant aid, on a dollar-for-dollar basis, up to the amount set forth in “Guidelines” for students, per academic year provided by Christian ministries with whom the student or the student’s parents are affiliated. Please note that ministry sponsorships are not tax-deductible.



  • TMU will match up to $2,500 for all ministry scholarships per student.

  • Both the award and the matching grant are disbursed equally between the Fall and Spring semesters. Subsequent gifts by any ministry will not be matched. 

  • Student must have a cumulative high school GPA or cumulative college GPA of at least 2.0.

  • Ministry Matching Grants are only available for full-time traditional undergraduate students and are not available to students in the Online Program or graduate programs. 

  • Both the check from the Christian ministry, as well as this completed Ministry Matching Grant Application, must be received by the August 2nd deadline in order for matching funds to be awarded.

  • Funds are limited; therefore, interested students and Christian ministries should apply early. Students are awarded on a first come, first served basis.

  • Please make all checks payable to The Master’s University and mailed to the University's address with the attention to the Financial Aid Office.

  • It is the student’s responsibility to know how the gift from the Christian ministry and TMU’s matching will be coordinated with other financial aid. The student is encouraged to consult the Office of Financial Aid at 661.362.2290 or to ascertain how the award will affect their financial aid before requesting participation from a Christian ministry, as their award could be affected. The student is also responsible to correspond with the Christian ministry to ensure that BOTH application and check are submitted before the deadline. 

  • The Ministry Matching Grant is not intended to: match gifts from individuals for specific students, match internship monies, or match wages.

Note: TMU is not responsible for contacting the Christians ministry from which you intend to receive support.
