Disciples of Christ Scholarships
International students must be in a degree program and going through the in-care process or otherwise in contact with the Region.
DOC students enrolled at the GTU taking 6 or more credit hrs per semester are eligible to apply for DSF scholarships.
M.Div students must be under care of a Disciples regional committee on the ministry; other students must provide references for denominational membership and endorsement.
A prospective student cannot be offered a DSF scholarship prior to offer of admission by the degree-granting school.
Expectations & Deadlines
1) a copy of the financial aid form submitted
2) a copy of the semester’s class enrollment and fees form
3) DSF scholarship application form
4) First time applicants: a letter of endorsement from the Committee on Ministry (training & care) (MDiv) or references (other degree programs).
Persons requesting more than the base scholarship may be asked to submit additional information on personal finances and/or academic records. Applications received after the deadline may not be eligible or receive full consideration.
Base scholarships will be 25% of tuition. Exceptions:
a) The tuition or continuation fees for Ph.D. students and their need will be reviewed individually.
b) D.Min. students will not be eligible for scholarship.
This policy is subject to changes as follows:
A. If the student population or requests for scholarships are low, the base amount given to applicants may be increased or special on-time book scholarships may be awarded.
B. If there is a very significant negative change in the financial climate or increase in scholarship needs, awards may have to be reduced the following year.
C. DSF hopes to raise base scholarships award levels (dollar amounts) as often as possible.
Scholarship checks normally will be written directly to the applicant within the first three weeks of each semester. DSF receives the prerogative to make the check payable to the school of enrollment.
