Disciples Divinity House

of the University of Chicago

Am I eligible?

To be eligible for consideration as a Disciples Divinity House Scholar, a person must have been a participating member of a congregation of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) for at least one year.

In special circumstances, partial grants may be made to students from other churches of the Stone-Campbell tradition or from churches outside the United States and Canada with whom the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) has a historic and ongoing relationship.

How do I apply?

To be considered for admission as a Disciples Divinity House Scholar, a person must meet eligibility requirements and submit an application to the Disciples Divinity House by February 1.

DDH applicants must apply concurrently to the University of Chicago Divinity School. Application deadlines for the Divinity School are December 15 for PhD program, January 8 for the MA program, and January 15 for the MDiv program.

Applications to the Disciples Divinity House and Divinity School are two separate processes. However, they are closely coordinated. Any member of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) who is seeking admittance to the Divinity School is strongly encouraged to contact Dean Kristine A. Culp prior to the application process. An on-campus visit is normally part of the admissions decision process.
