Fees for Converge are made up of the Registration Fee and the Field Fees. Application is free. However, a non-refundable Registration Fee of $25, payable by check, credit card, or wire transfer, is due immediately upon acceptance to the Converge Program. The Registration Fee holds your place on a Converge internship project and assures us of your commitment to participate in the program. The $25USD Registration Fee is all that is required to confirm participation, to gain access to the Converge Course, and to gain permission to build your own Profile Page for communicating to supporters. The Registration Fee is non-refundable.
Field Fees are set by your Field Host. They are based on the Converge Project Location and number of days you will be staying at the location. Field Fees must be paid in full at least 10 days before the Session Start Date.
field fees cover room and board
- Field fees cover all room and board at the Converge Project Location
- Field fees DO NOT include airfare, visas, airport tax, insurance, or personal spending money.
The Converge office will not be involved in making flight arrangements or other travel tickets. It is the student's responsibility to search for the best airfare and arrange for visas, if necessary.
student dashboard: designing your profile page and accessing the course
The Dashboard is where you can add photos and a bit of your own story. To receive login credentials to the Converge Course (hosted at Blackboard.com), you must first pay the $25USD Registration Fee and then go to your Converge Dashboard to enter the name and email of your chosen Mentor, an experienced leader you trust from your own community.
Your Personal Profile Page will automatically display your Field Project Location and Session Dates. The Personal Profile Page will also have a DONATE and social sharing buttons. When donors make contributions from your DONATE button on your Profile Page, a special fund is created to automatically designate scholarship funds toward your Field Fees. If your scholarship fund exceeds the Field Fees due, you may also submit travel receipts for reimbursement (before the final date of your Converge Session).
*NOTE: Gifts to YWAM Converge (aka UofN Student Mobilization Centre of Youth with A Mission) are tax deductible as provided in Section 170 of the IRS Code in the United States of America. The donor received no goods, services or other benefits from this gift.
