MDivX Internship Site Application

Due by Monday, February 17, 2020

Note: If congregational approval will come after the application deadline, please submit your internship site application by the above deadline and notify our office once you confirm congregational approval. We are happy to receive applications prior to the deadline – the earlier the better! 

Diversity, equity, and inclusion is an ongoing initiative at Luther Seminary. We have a growing population of diverse students and seek to build a culture where all students can thrive. 

In the site narrative portion of the application, please include examples of how your congregation is seeking opportunities for diversity, equity, and inclusion. 

After you’ve completed and submitted your site application, the Contextual Learning office will contact you with next steps.
