Campus Ministry Internship and Scholarship Program

The Campus Ministry Internship and Scholarship Program exists for two reasons. First, by recruiting and training intentional, prospective workers in college ministry, the program furthers the discipling of undergraduate students on APU’s campus through internship positions in the Spiritual Life office. Over the program’s three years, interns work one year each in the areas of (1) chapel, (2) small-group discipleship and service, and (3) pastoral counseling. Second, interns graduate equipped with the experience and education to serve in fast-paced campus ministries, chaplain’s offices, or related ministries with a college or young-adult focus. All of this is achieved through a combination of high-level work experience and financial aid in the form of an internship and partial scholarship for the Master of Divinity (MDiv) degree program.

Each year for the full three years of the MDiv program, successful applicants receive up to $5,700 in graduate internship funds (earned by working 20 hours per week for approximately 8 months of the year) plus a $10,200 scholarship.
