Short answer questions

Answer the following questions in a few brief paragraphs.


Each applicant is required to obtain two recommendations. Please provide contact information for these individuals below. At least one recommendation should be a professor or university staff person, and we encourage you to have a personal, spiritual, or religious mentor write your second letter. Recommendations should be able to speak to your communication skills, capacity for self-reflection, and emotional maturity. Student recommendations will not be considered among the two required recommendations.

Applicants are responsible for contacting the individuals who will be completing their recommendations and providing them a link to the recommendation form at https://chaplaincy.richmond.edu/programs/pilgrimage/holy-land/recommendation.html. All forms are due by the application deadline (November 7), including recommendation letters.
