If you have concluded that you would like to spend 9 months in rich community, pursuing a seamless faith in Christ, we would be delighted for you to apply.

The 2018-2019 class is now filled.  Consider applying for the 2019-2020 class or check out The Fellows Initiative for opportunities at other locations this year.

The trouble with free form builders is that they're stingy about letting form submitters save their work. So, before you begin, save yourself a headache and do the following: 1) Complete the essays elsewhere (such as in Word) so you can copy and paste the answers to this form. 2) Gather the names and email addresses of three references—spiritual, professional/academic, and peer. 3) Find a good photo of yourself that you can link to somewhere online. 4) Get comfortable. This is going to take a minute. But it will be well worth it.
