Welcome! If you’re planning to start grad school in Fall 2019, InterVarsity’s Emerging Scholars Network (ESN) wants to help you get connected to Christian communities wherever you’re heading. Sign up for our ESN Connect program below and we’ll:
1) invite you to a special videochat on how to choose a school and prepare once you’ve accepted
2) connect you to Christian grad student communities at schools you’re considering (where possible)
3) Enter you into a drawing for a chance to win a $100 scholarship to attend an InterVarsity grad retreat or conference event
The ESN Connect pilot program is designed to provide meaningful support through a manageable time commitment. We will host a videochat in late March or early April, put you in touch with InterVarsity communities at the schools you’re considering and/or regional Christian gatherings for grad students after the videochat, and then check in a few times in 2019/2020 to see if we can help you further and get your feedback for future years. We look forward to connecting with you!
If you’re a faculty member supporting students headed to graduate school, you’re welcome to sit in on the videochat to learn more about InterVarsity opportunities for grad students and faculty as well. Just sign up at the form and indicate that you are faculty.
All the best,
