How to Apply to be an Emmaus Scholar

Who Should Apply?

Current Freshmen and Sophomores are invited to apply. We are seeking an energetic, committed, and diverse group of students who wish to live in intentional Christian community learning how to do justice, grow in their faith, and critically reflect upon integral mission and the centrality of Christ to Godís reconciliation of the world.

This academic and residential program has been developed in order to help you to grow academically, socially, and spiritually, so that you may live a purposeful life of faith, learning, and integral mission (joining faithful Christian witness and social responsibility).

How to Apply?

The application process is pretty simple.

  1. Pray and talk to people who know you well and share your desire to integrate faith, learning, and justice.

  2. Approach three people who know you well (a friend, pastor, and professor) and ask them if they would be willing to support your application to the Emmaus Scholars Program.

  3. Fill in the ONLINE APPLICATION.

Complete applications and references must be submitted by†December 3, 2013.

When will I hear about my status?

Once your application and three letters of reference have been submitted you will receive confirmation from the Emmaus Scholar’s office. The selection of students for next year’s program will be made before you return to Hope in Janaury.

Note: you will know whether or not you have been invited to participate in the Emmaus Scholars Program prior to the 2014–2015 application deadline for housing.
