Contribute toward our Deaf and Hard of Hearing Scholarship Fund and help us meet our goal of $50,000 in scholarship funds for the Deaf community. 

Dallas International University is a Christ-centered university preparing global leaders to partner with local communities. DIU exists "For the World." Our holistic education focuses on rigorous learning, spiritual formation, professionalism, and real-world experience. As our alumni partner with leaders from communities worldwide and combine their experience and skills, together they forge solutions to locally expressed problems.

DIU recently launched a new Certificate in Sign Language Linguistics (CSLL). Graduates will be prepared to work in a variety of roles with sign language communities around the globe. CSLL graduates will be well prepared to study a community’s sign language and to provide the community with life-changing resources and support through linguistic analysis, translation, Deaf education, ethnoarts, and advocacy.

In order to receive this rigorous preparation through DIU's regionally accredited programs, most students rely on scholarships. As the price of education and cost of living continues to rise around the world, our students need your support now more than ever. Our 4TheWorld-Student Support project aims to secure the funds necessary to continue providing vital financial assistance for our students. DIU cares deeply that students are able to graduate without the weight of debt, so that they can launch immediately into their careers and callings. The Deaf and Hard of Hearing Scholarship Fund will provide 75% of tuition costs per student, enabling more students from the Deaf community to learn the linguistics surrounding the world’s sign languages. Give the gift that keeps on giving - scholarship funds to provide students with a global, relational, Christ-centered education from DIU.

Mission

The mission of Dallas International University, as an institution of higher education, is to provide education and research opportunities leading to degrees in applied linguistics, culture studies, and development of languages. This education equips our alumni to serve marginalized people groups around the world.

Needs

We are raising funds for our 4TheWorld-Student Support, with a goal to raise $50,000 for our Deaf and Hard of Hearing Scholarship Fund. A generous donor has already given $25,000 to challenge other donors to give a matching $25,000. Our Board of Trustees has pledged the first $5,000 leaving just $20,000 more to go. Will you join us in making a global, relational, Christ-centered education more accessible to the Deaf community?
