Enrollment Process & Benefits

HTI Enrollment Process

With the establishment of the HTI Consortium, HTI Member Schools determine student’s participation in HTI’s programming. These Member Schools will enroll students from Hispanic/Latina/o descent who have been accepted into their PhD, ThD, or EdD, program. Enrollment can begin as early as December and must be completed by April 30th of each year. Selected students will be enrolled online and once the HTI has confirmed their enrollment, the HTI staff will contact the HTI Scholar to complete the registration form. Institutions must annually re-enroll their HTI Scholars already participating in HTI’s programming.

What if I am applying and/or accepted at a non-consortium school?

Since HTI is an open consortium, you should express your interest in becoming an HTI scholar to your non-member institution’s doctoral program director or dean, so that they can explore the possibility of the school’s membership in the consortium.

Here is information about the HTI Consortium!
