THE CHAUTAUQUA SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

As you may know, at General Convention 2018, the convention body voted to close the Chautauqua Scholarship Program (CSP) following the 2020 summer session. Unfortunately, however, the director who was elected to serve during 2019 and 2020 had to relinquish his duties as of the close of the 2019 Chautauqua Scholarship Program. Your Board of Directors then had to make a difficult decision and after considering all the proposed options, the decision was made to close the program after the 2019 season.

At the same time, we wish to celebrate and recognized the fact that, since 1920, this program has assisted in the spiritual development of 2,224 young adults!

Going forward, we have an exciting year of celebration in 2020. That year marks the 100th year of our formal, organized presence on the grounds of the Chautauqua Institution. We have many activities throughout next summer to mark this occasion. Join the IOKDS Celebration 2020 Facebook page to keep up to date. See also the regular articles in The Silver Cross starting with the Summer 2019 edition. To book your stay, especially if you are a former CSP student or staff, see IOKDS.org Vacation at Chautauqua for information. We look forward to seeing you!
