We are now accepting student applications for the 2020 ENGAGE Youth Theology Initiative, scheduled for July 5-14, 2020.
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 or problems with the online application. 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 this year's program is $500 per student. However, do not let even this cost deter you from applying. Financial aid is available for 2020 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.
There are some questions that each student will need to consider as they work their way through the application. We suggest creating your answers in a Word or Pages document and then copying and pasting those answers into the form on our website. Applications will be accepted from January 4 - May 4, 2020.
