Regis College will continue and expand its increased financial support for students admitted to its Doctoral of Theology (ThD) and Master of Theology (ThM) programs in the summer and fall of 2014. The new level of support for the ThD program invites incoming full-time students who qualify for Ontario Student Opporunity Trust Fund awards to apply for up to $7,500 per year for four years; similarly qualified incoming full-time DMin students may apply for up to $3,000 per year for three years; likewise, qualified incoming full-time ThM students may apply for up to $4,000 per year for two years. The new bursary awards reflect Regis College's commitment to advancing theological research at the service of faith communities in Canada.
In addition, one entrance award of up to $10,000 is available to a first year ThD student who is pursuing a program in Lonergan Studies. The Lonergan Research Institute at Regis College also awards several research assistantships annually to qualified ThD students, for more information consult www.lonergan-lri.ca
Regis College anticipates that the ThD level of funding will be available to students entering the new conjoint PhD program, once this program begins to accept applications. For more information, please visit the Toronto School of Theology website.
