Who is eligible for a scholarship?
For the 2016 season, the scholarships will be made available only to students who have not attended a Ten Days trip in the past. The goal is to assist college students, but younger students may also apply.
How much will my scholarship be?
A list of scholarship amounts can be found above. Fundraising is meant to be a part of the Ten Days experience so that you can invite others to join in the mission with you. Therefore, the scholarship is meant to be an assistance, but it is not meant to pay for the entire trip.
What do I need to do?
Please fill in all fields below to be considered as a recipient. Incomplete forms will not be eligible.
Scholarship recipients are expected to provide to Ten Days:
- Before scholarship money will be transferred to your account Ten Days expects a hand-written thank you note addressed to one of Ten Days' ministry partners. Our financial partners make the scholarships possible for team members. Therefore, in 2016, we are asking that each recipient write a thank to one of our partners. These notes should mailed to the Every Nation office.
- Before scholarship money will be transferred to your account Ten Days expects a written explanation of your hopes and expectations for the trip.
- No later thant 2 weeks after returning home: 25 high-quality photos from the experience (meaning, the photos are at least 1MB each or larger)
- No later than 1 week after returning home: a personal testimony in writing with an accompanying picture of the team member to be used in Ten Days communications.
When is the 2016 deadline?
Deadlines will be determined per trip and can be found above.
How will I know if I won?
Scholarship recipients will be notified via email once the committee votes. Recipients will be finalized at least 1 month prior to departure of the trip.
