    HTI Eligibility Requirement for Potential HTI Scholars

    With the establishment of the HTI Consortium, only students accepted into a Ph.D., Th.D., and Ed.D. at one of the HTI member schools (click here for list of schools) are eligible to participate as HTI Scholars. Each member institution determines which and how many students they will support as HTI Scholars. To be considered for eligibility, the following requirements are considered:

    • Hispanic or Latina/o students either entering or already enrolled in a doctoral program at one of the member schools of the HTI, in the fields of religion, biblical studies or theology.
    • Intention to teach or do research in theological education and demonstrate a capacity for leadership.
    • Commitment to a religious community within the United States.

    Students who meet these criteria and are attending or applying to one of the member institutions are urged to express their interest in becoming an HTI scholar to the school’s director of dean of Ph.D. studies.


    What if I am enrolled at, or applying to, a non-consortium school?

    Since HTI is an open consortium, you should express your interest in becoming an HTI scholar to your non-member institution’s doctoral program director or dean, so that they can explore the possibility of the school’s membership in the consortium.
