The Lengnick Tuition Grants
Persons wishing to be considered for 2017-18 financial grants from the Polly Barr and Lewis Wood Lengnick Endowment must file a current Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/. Term awards will be given after admission to the DMin program on a first-come, first-served basis with preference to students who have successfully filed the FAFSA by March 15. When filling out the FAFSA be sure to include the SMU school code: 003613.
To receive a grant you must be properly registered for 2017-18 courses. Students seeking Lengnick grants are also welcome to submit a one-page letter to the office of the director of the Doctor of Ministry Program explaining any special circumstances that should be taken into account.
No Perkins funded financial aid is available to international students. International students must comply with all University and federal financial requirements in order to be considered for admission. Additionally, all international students must pay their own tuition, fees, books, travel, lodging, food, medical insurance, and any other necessary expenses.
