FINANCIAL AID REQUEST

Journeys is strongly committed to making our programs available to everyone, regardless of financial situation.

Throughout our history, Journeys has never turned away a participant for lack of funds. Our financial aid process is straightforward and open-ended, and we invite you to apply for the level of aid that will make the program do-able for your family.

Let the cost of the program be no barrier to providing your young person (or yourself!) with this experience at the right time  — whether this year, next, or the next. Our financial aid funds come directly from people who have seen the power of our programs, and donate to make these experiences accessible to everyone who is called to them. We are happy to work together to create a financial plan to ensure your access to this experience!

If you have questions at any time, please email us.

TUITION PLAN

The questions below are the first step in creating a comprehensive tuition plan. Depending on your, or your family’s, unique situation, this plan may include:

  • First, we ask families or individuals to stretch financially to make the program possible. We run on a tight budget and stretch our funds to meet the needs of as many as possible. We are also willing to arrange payment plans to spread out costs, especially if your payment plan begins at registration.

  • Next, we provide support for families and individuals who raise tuition funds in their home communities. We suggest that participants and families engage in some fundraising among family and friends. This both raises needed funds, and engages the participant's community in the experience they are about to embark on — which increases the power and sustainability of the changes they will undergo, and provides them with a group of folks who are looking forward to stories upon their return.

  • Last, we offer scholarships to supplement the remainder of the program tuition. The purely scholarship portion of the tuition cost may be about half of the tuition; sometimes it will be just a small supplement to bridge the gap. Our scholarships rarely cover the entire cost of a program.  

To apply for financial assistance, please complete the online application below and submit. Your financial aid application will help give us a financial overview for you / your family: income, expenses and unique challenges. Upon receipt of your financial aid application, we will review your request, then make contact to develop a plan to make your program participation possible.
