Mission Trip Scholarship Request
Thank you for your interest in serving on a future mission trip. This is an excellent way to grow in your faith, see other parts of the world, serve others, 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 with funding support 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.

Eligibility:
1. Completed application submitted within 60 days prior to the trip departure date

2. Approval of sponsoring agency (see examples here: https://www.gemf-us.org/missions ) 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 create an account and share your testimony and/or pictures from your experience (a link to the GEMF Community here: https://www.gemf-us.org/blog )

GEMF Scholarship Application and Funding Award Policy:

 The Scholarship Committee will not consider any application for a scholarship without the applicant having first submitted a complete Application (below).

 The Committee will communicate the amount of funding for the scholarship award and applicants are responsible to pay any costs in excess of amounts awarded (e.g. through personal finances, other donations and /or external financial support).

 All scholarship recipients are required to submit a testimony along with photos on your experience within two weeks of your return as a result of this scholarship (acknowledgment below).

 Scholarship funding is awarded after confirmation of travel purchase and typically cannot be received as cash or given directly to an individual.

 If the trip is canceled, the scholarship can be used towards a future trip. If you are unable to participate and must cancel altogether, the scholarship funds will be returned to the designated fund.

 All required trip preparation must be completed before the scholarship is awarded and coordination will be verified with the sponsoring agency (as applicable). This means that all training must be attended, all paperwork is filled out and complete, a valid passport, and any balance of your trip fees are paid in full (GEMF will coordinate readiness with the sponsoring agency).
