Trailhead How to Apply
All applications must be accompanied by a nomination from a pastor or high school teacher. Pastors and teachers, please submit your nomination online. Learn more about how our program can be an asset to your ongoing ministry.
Students, please apply via this form. You’ll be asked to provide the name and contact information of a pastor or teacher who can supply a nomination; we ask that you be personally in touch with that nominator prior to submitting the application.
Through the generosity of the Lilly Endowment, we’re able to significantly subsidize the cost of the Trailhead experience. The fee per participant is $775. We recommend that, when possible, congregations and schools share this cost with families—through support-raising, direct scholarships, or other means—as a mutual investment in the vocational development of their young people.
Trailhead offers a limited number of scholarships to families and congregations with exceptional need. Please inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org.
