Agape’s Summer Scholarship 2021
As of today, Agape will accept scholarship applications (application form found at the bottom of this page) for 2021 international adults camps.
The Scholarship program is the international summer school of Agape Ecumenical Center. The summer school brings together three perspectives on the world: one linked to one’s own body, one to the surrounding society and finally to transcendence. The scholarship program therefore offers a transversal view of theworld through the Agape approach based on community life and exchange.
Everyone who is interested in the theme of a camp and who is willing to be involved in it’s community life is able to take part in it. These are the basic things that are needed in order to have meaningful meetings with each other and a real exchange of ideas. At the beginning of its history, Agape was mainly attended by Protestants. However, very soon Catholics and non-believers began to take part in the camps too. Today Agape is attended by people that identify themselves in many and varied spiritual practices.

Non ci sono campi

Agape provides scholarships for people over eighteen who want to take part in the international camps at Agape. This year due to the pandemic we will accept requests from European countries or European neighbour countries. Regretfully, we are not able to meet every request for financial aid since the demand is greater than the funds that we have available. All applications will be considered carefully.

The three camps in the scholarship program form a unique experience and then we will accept only candidates who will participate in the whole period (two weeks). Exceptions are to be agreed with the management.

Please note that the scholarship program is not a tourist experience and that it will not be possible not to participate in the activities of the camp for tourist reasons. International camps for summer 2021 will be in English. This year it will not be possible to host interpreters and therefore we will not be able to offer simultaneous translation in several languages.

Agape reserves the right to deny the reimbursement to those who give false declaration during the application phase.

Scholarships are awarded to applicants according to the following criteria. It is very important that you refer to these points when completing the application. Priority will be given to applicants:

  • who have never attended a camp at Agape
  • who show interest in Agape’s activities and are motivated to come to Agape
  • who can provide a support letter from an organization/a group that is already part of Agape’s existing network
  • who will provide a short motivation letter
  • whose expenses are in part covered by their organization/local groups
  • who will share their experience with other people once they return to their community

For summer 2021 we request applicants to participate to the whole two weeks of international camps, it will not be possible to participate to only one of the tree camps (theological, oikonomia, ultragender). The program is to be intended as a unique proposal for a group of 20/25 participants from the 30th of July to the 13th of August 2021.

For summer 2021 international camps will be only in English, there will not be the possibility to host interpreters and therefore to guarantee simultaneous translations in diverse languages like in the past years.
