Our 2019 Scholarship Fund

Invest in the life of a Co-Serve student by providing a scholarship to help them attend one of our 2019 Servant Leadership Academies.

The Need

Our need and challenge each year is to help our students from around the world attend our Servant Leadership Academies.  These Academy programs are designed to help participants consider their purpose as they meet real-life examples of people who are living as servant-leaders.

The Academy programs require travel for many of the students as well as the costs of their local travel, food and lodging during the event.  Academy participants are carefully selected and we always ask them to cover part of the cost.  However, difficult economic situations in some countries prevent many qualified students from participating.

In 2019, Co-Serve is planning the following Servant Leadership Academies:

1. June: Servant Leadership Academy-Kyiv.   The Kyiv Academy program, held in partnership with Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University, will help at least 14 Co-Serve students from around the world to come together and be part of a safe, interactive community where they visit and learn from real-life examples of communities of servant leadership in Ukraine.

3. July: Servant Leadership Academy-Colorado.  The Colorado Academy, held in partnership with Parker Hills Bible Fellowship, is similar to the Kyiv Academy and will help 12 participants visit and learn from real-life examples of communities of servant leadership in the USA.

We are seeking to raise $13,000 to fund 26 scholarships of $500 each that will go directly to help these 26 Academy participants cover part of their travel costs and part of their participation costs.  Your gift of any amount will be used to create this much needed fund for Co-Serve in 2019.  For those who contribute, we will keep you updated on how your gift is helping to impact the students through these events.
