On December 15, 2020, we will begin accepting applications for the 2021 ENGAGE Youth Theology Initiative, scheduled for July 7-16, 2021.
Space is limited to the top 26 candidates, and early applications will be given priority consideration. Please email the ENGAGE Program Director at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. ENGAGE candidates should have a strong academic record, curiosity about the relationship between theology and social issues, a collaborative spirit, and a commitment to serving both church and society through dialogue, reflection, and compassionate action.
Because of the generosity of Lilly Endowment Inc., the cost of the ENGAGE summer residency is $500 per student. However, do not let even this cost deter you from applying. Financial aid is available for 2021 and will be offered based on need and merit. We also encourage students' home congregations and/or other patrons to sponsor students' participation in the program by paying the camp fee.
