- Support ChI
Many hear the call to spiritual service and long to answer. For some, the path to fulfillment is hindered by financial obstacles. We would like to ensure that those on a spiritual sojourn that leads them to The Chaplaincy Institute are fully supported and held. We are committed to making our interfaith programs accessible to all qualified applicants, with your help.
ChI relies solely on donors to fund this program. We are not an accredited institution and, therefore, students are not eligible for student loans or government funded financial aid. Offering discounts in tuition is our primary offering with the intention of making our program more affordable for some to manage financially. Scholarships can make the difference between someone being able to fulfill their call at ChI or not.
Won’t you please help? By underwriting and funding scholarships, you are easing the financial burdens of deserving students in need, which allows them to go where they are called to serve. Thank you for your generosity.
Rev. Jodi Varner, Rev. Suzanne Tindall, Rev. Mary Beth Melcher, Rev. Eleesa Hager, Rev. Michele Casale, Rev. Maria Brittle, Rev. Irene Boczek, & Rev. Jennifer Bernstein – Interfaith Ordination Ceremony Spring 2014 – several of these clergy would not have been able to attend ChI and fulfill their call without a scholarship, thanks to generous donors.
We offer two levels of scholarships. One provides a $3.000 discount in program fees for students in the Interfaith Studies Certificate Program or an $1,000 discount for Interfaith Spiritual Direction Certificate Program students. The other provides a $1,500 discount per Interfaith Studies student and $500 for Spiritual Direction students. Below you will find how your donation would translate to the students in the program. Your support is urgently needed and very much appreciated.
