Scholarships and discounts offered: Full tuition scholarships and application fee waiver

For several decades the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago (LSTC) has been working in the area of interfaith understanding and relations. This has included offering a rich menu of courses designed for students pursuing MA, MDiv, and PhD degrees, with assistance from our well established Center of Christian-Muslim Engagement for Peace and Justice.  LSTC enthusiastically welcomes applications from IFYC alumni, and the LSTC Admissions Office will be pleased to discuss these degree programs and the possibilities for financial aid with interested persons.

Because of these commitments, each year LSTC is happy to grant full-tuition scholarships to MA and MDiv students who want to come to Chicago and immerse themselves in interfaith studies and who meet LSTC’s eligibility criteria. IFYC alumni are also eligible to receive an application fee waiver ($50) for applying to LSTC’s programs. In addition, LSTC’s Public Church Fellows program offers generous stipends to students who want to serve in interfaith contexts during the course of their studies. The religiously diverse city of Chicago provides a wonderful context for engaging in interfaith studies, and LSTC students are deeply committed to social justice and social action.
