The travel grants are primarily need-based financial aid however, each applicant’s academic performance will also be weighed into the evaluation review process. Priority will be given to older applicants. We regret that, given the high volume of applications, applicants who have already received a FAITH travel grant to Ionian Village in previous summers will not be considered.
Ionian Village participants will travel across Greece, venerating the relics of the Saints, walking in the footsteps of the Apostles, and visiting significant sites of Greek history and culture. At the end of each program, the campers, staff and clergy return home with strengthened faith, life-long friendships based on Christian love, and an expanded appreciation for the Orthodox Church and Greek culture.
For more details about FAITH programs, please visit www.faithendowment.org. FAITH Scholarships are NOW available for participants of Session One and Session Two, ages 14-18.
Please complete all of the questions in the enclosed application and attach additional pages and requested documents as necessary.
Completed applications must be received by February 28, 2014. Incomplete and late applications will not be considered by the Scholarship Committee.
