HTI Latine Doctoral Accompaniment Seminar

In August of 2022, the Hispanic Theological Initiative (HTI), the Hispanic Summer Program (HSP), and the Hispanic Youth Leadership Academy (HYLA) established a joint program, the Latine Doctoral Accompaniment Seminar (LDAS) for master’s students. This program is designed to assist Latine senior master’s students with their applications to PhD programs and fellowship applications. Students accepted into the LDAS program must identify and describe a research project and apply for PhD programs at ATS-accredited institutions. They are also encouraged to strongly consider HTI member schools due to the comprehensive support HTI offers Latine PhD students.

Master’s students in their final year of coursework who are enrolled in HTI or HSP member schools and/or participants in the HYLA programming are eligible to apply for this program.

LDAS participants benefit from the following:

  • A for-credit virtual course designed to strengthen applications to PhD programs and explore the landscape of theological education in the United States and its impact and engagement with Latine communities*;
  • Editorial support for application materials;
  • Mentoring by accomplished Latine scholars in a variety of disciplines;
  • LDAS in-person meeting at the American Academy of Religion/ Society of Biblical Literature Annual Meetings (AAR/SBL);
  • Networking at AAR/SBL HTI’s reception.
