First Seed Scholarship Program Application
The First Seed Scholarship Application will be open for each of the 2014 Ten Days trips. Recipients will be determined for each trip individually. The application will remain open for applicants to continue to apply for trips later in the year.

Which trips will be awarded scholarships?
Each Ten Days mission experience based out of North America in 2014 has at least 2 scholarships alloted for participants. Ten Days trips based out of Asia are not part of the scholarship program. Please see the Trip Page for a list of our upcoming 2014 trips.
Who is eligible for a scholarship?
College students who have not previously been on a Ten Days trip are eligible for a scholarship. For 2014, the majority of scholarships will be made available to college students with the exception of the Johannesburg and Kingston trips – which will have scholarships available for any team member who had not previously been on a Ten Days trip.
How much will my scholarship be?
All international Ten Days trip scholarships will be for $500. All domestic trip scholarships will be for half of the trip cost. 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 2014, we are asking that each recipient write a thank to one of our partners.
- 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 2014 deadline?
Deadlines will be determined per trip. Scholarships will be announced 1 month prior to trip departure.
How will I know if I won?
Scholarship recipients will be announced on the Ten Days website and notified via email once the committee votes. Recipients will be finalized 1 month prior to departure of the trip.
