Our mission at Dallas Theological Seminary is to glorify God by equipping godly servant-leaders for the proclamation of His Word and the building up of the body of Christ worldwide. The Alumni Scholarship Fund is our newest effort to do just that.
The ASF is the first completely alumni-funded scholarship and was started to help students endure the financial difficulties of Seminary. Our generous alumni are helping students overcome the same difficulties that they faced, as one generation helping another. Most students say that a $500 scholarship significantly helps them stay the course to complete their degree.
Just the Beginning
Chancellor, Dr. Mark Bailey, launched the ASF in the Spring of 2020 as one of his last initiatives as president. To date, the ASF has raised $1.55 million pledged over five years, nearly one-third of the way to the goal of $5 million.
Why did you join the ASF?
“Simple answer to your question. I am a graduate of DTS in the ThD program and am thankful for my Dallas education and the ongoing educational ministry of the Seminary.”
– Bill, ThD ’83
“I joined the Alumni Campaign because it seemed like a great opportunity to make a strategic difference for the Kingdom.”
– Timothy, MACE ’14
“I was motivated by my love and appreciation for all that I have received from DTS over the years of studying there. The professors and staff inspire me… As a nonprofit director myself, I recognize the backbone of an organization’s support often is the monthly donors.”
– David, DMin ’20
With $5 million, DTS can provide a significant number of scholarships to students to complete their degree program. $5 million would provide extra help to hundreds of students, giving them the financial encouragement they need to complete their degree.
