U.S. Participant Application

Our next Summer Program session will be July 11 – 30, 2018. Successful applicants MUST be available for all program activities: approximately 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. every day, including a half dozen evening events.  This includes Saturdays and Sundays.  There will be two non-consecutive days off during the program that are still being determined. If you have any questions about this, visit our Frequently Asked Questions page, or please contact us at info@handsofpeace.org.

TUITION:

The total tuition for US participants is $1,500 including a $200 deposit.  The deposit is due on or before April 1 to secure your place in the program. The deposit is refundable up until April 30. Unless a payment plan is arranged, the final payment is due on or before June 1.

Tuition covers bus travel, activity fees, and lunches, as well as a portion of the overarching program costs, such as staff stipends and location. Only 10% of our annual budget is covered by the participant tuition fees.  

SCHOLARSHIP and PAYMENT OPTIONS:

Need-based scholarships are available: any reduced tuition will be determined by a sliding scale. We are also happy to arrange a monthly payment plan at the time of the deposit. Once an applicant is accepted, you will receive the link to our Scholarship Application form. In the meantime if you would like more information regarding financial assistance please email Chicago Site Director Rhonda McCarty or San Diego Site Director Sarah Heirendt.

Application deadline is Sunday, February 11, 2018 at midnight PST. Once your application is received, a staff member will reach out to schedule an interview. Final selection of applicants will be determined no later than March 15, 2018. Please click on the link below to fill out the application. You will receive an automatic confirmation email after your application is submitted. If you do not receive a confirmation email within 24 hours, please contact info@handsofpeace.org.
