I am a ThM student. How do I qualify for the Last Year Free (LYF) scholarship?

LYF is a special scholarship program for new and continuing students enrolled in the Masters of Theology (ThM) program in the fall 2016, spring 2017, fall 2017, or spring 2018 semesters. If you meet the following criteria during the final 24 hours of the ThM, you may receive the LYF Scholarship.

  • Be in good standing with DTS during the last 24 hours (no holds);
  • GPA is 2.5 or higher during the last 24 hours;
  • Complete at least 6 hours in a classroom on an approved campus (Dallas, DC, or Houston) each session in which the LYF scholarship is received (this includes winter and summer sessions; exception: final session); and
  • Submit the normal financial aid application via campus net in February for the summer and fall sessions and in September for the winter and spring sessions.

The scholarship covers tuition only for courses needed to complete the ThM (required and electives) when they are taken in a classroom on an approved campus (Dallas, DC, Houston)  during the final 24 credit hours (usually hours 97-120) of the student’s program.

The only non-residential courses covered by LYF are the internship, thesis, and RS102.

The LYF scholarship supplements other scholarship and funding, so please continue to use these sources during your final 24 hours.
