Costs of the Fellows Program
Each fellow raises $7,500 to participate in the program. This money covers the costs for seminary courses, retreats, books, speaker fees, and materials. Room and board is provided by host families who are members of The Falls Church Anglican. During the program year, fellows use their wages for personal needs and as a nest egg for start-up costs at the end of the year. This makes beginning one’s career in the Washington D.C. metro area (with its high cost of living) more feasible. Fellows typically share housing costs with other young professionals they’ve met through the program at the completion of the year.
Frequently Asked Questions
This fee covers every aspect of the program – seminary courses, books and study materials, retreats, speaker costs, and special events. For more about “the why” of support raising, read The Spirituality of Fund-Raising, by Henri Nouwen.
We recommend support raising for all the good reasons that Henri Nouwen explores. But, if circumstances prevent that, or if you would rather contribute your own funds, that’s okay too. You can also raise some and pay some. However you pay for the program, we ask that you invite a committed group of friends to support you in prayer.
