Tuition & Scholarships
The tuition fee for the program is $10,000. The fee includes five-day retreat in Ars, France, land transportation, room and board, honorarium fees, and entry fees to museums and historical sites.
The following are not included in the tuition fee: transportation to/from Chicago, airfare to/from Europe, personal expenses, and personal/optional activities outside of the program.
Midwest Theological Forum has generously set up a scholarship fund to assist seminarians with the program fee.
We ask that seminarians, however, do everything possible to secure their own funding as this allows us to help those seminarians from dioceses suffering from severe financial hardship. Additionally, priority will be given to those applicants who can secure full or partial funding.
The scholarship application can be found on page 10 of the 2014 Rome Experience application packet.
