Apply for Civil Rights Pilgrimage by Oct. 4 

Applications are open for the Center for Peacemaking’s Civil Rights Pilgrimage, a domestic immersion experience where participants will traverse the U.S. south to experience places and learn about people that comprised the U.S. Southern Civil Rights Movement. 

This week-long program will take place from Jan. 5-12 and is open to undergraduate and graduate students.  

The application is due Monday, Oct. 4, by 1 p.m. Selected applicants will be invited to participate in a face-to-face interview.  

The subsidized trip costs $300. All participants are required to take part in pre-trip meetings, a week-long pilgrimage (including visits to museums, churches and memorials) and a post-trip reflection presentation. 

Applicants should be open to the program’s three goals: 

  1. Engage in personal formation through learning about the discernment processes of well-and lesser-known figures of the Civil Rights Movement. 
  1. Experience a deepening of faith rooted in a commitment to racial justice and building the beloved community. 
  1. Learn Civil Rights Movement history including its various influences, motivations, aims, actions, outcomes and impacts. 

More information is available on the Center for Peacemaking website.
