We do not want lack of money to exclude you. God provides for those He wants there: Check with your church; many churches want to help their students get this kind of training. Talk with your chapter leaders or IV staff worker to see if scholarship funds are available.

If necessary, you may defer up to half of the cost for Basileia, with the approval of your staff worker. The money you defer must be paid to InterVarsity by the end of August.
