Since participation in the trip is limited, we ask that each potential traveler submit an application.  After the application is reviewed and a decision has been made, you will receive an email regarding your eligibility for the trip. If approved, you will receive further information at that time.

The intent of the Initiative is to provide the study trip for you basically at the cost of tuition. The following questions should not be read to suggest the seminary expects you to cover the cost; the default assumption is these costs will be covered fully as provided for in the Initiative. On the other hand, it is possible that some students will have the means to pay for the trip themselves, or at least to help with the costs. In order to assess this, please answer the questions below.
For example, a parent or other donor that could pay the full cost. They would need to use the "Guest/Donor Application FYI."
