Short-Term Mission Trip Funding Request
Thank you for your interest in serving on a future mission trip. This is an excellent way to live a more fulfilled life, grow in your faith, see other parts of the world, serve God, as well as develop meaningful, new, friendships. Our goal is to enable people who might not otherwise have the financial means, to participate in a short-term mission trip funded through Global Education Ministries Foundation (GEMF).

Please understand that a scholarship is a gift from someone who was willing to make a donation to support
your travel. Thus, we kindly ask your request is based on financial need. In an effort to be good stewards of these funds, you will find that we ask questions that some may feel to be personal and confidential in nature. Please know that all the information you provide is critical to the process and will be held in strict confidence. Each application is coded which will replace your name and address so the review by the scholarship committee will be anonymous.

Eligibility:
1. Completed application submitted within 90 days prior to the trip departure date
2. Approval of sponsoring agency providing logistical support to coordinate the mission trip with GEMF.
3. A desire for greater fulfillment through service to others by participating in a mission trip.
4. A willingness to share your testimony, pictures from your trip, and to keep an open heart and mind of being transformed through the power of love and service to others in need.
