College men invited to apply to Benedictine Scholars Program

February 27, 2012

Saint Meinrad Archabbey is inviting college men to apply for its new Benedictine Scholars Program. The program takes place on the St. Meinrad, IN, campus from June 2 to July 29.

The Benedictine Scholars is an eight-week summer program offering young men who are interested in a possible religious vocation the chance to experience life at a Benedictine monastery while earning money and advancing their education.

Participants will live on the campus of Saint Meinrad Archabbey (room and board provided) and join the monastic community for prayer, meals and recreation. Mornings will be spent working on campus to earn a stipend. In the afternoons, participants will take a graduate-level course at Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology and participate in other formation and discernment-oriented activities.

The program is open to Catholic men who are currently pursuing college or graduate degrees. There is no charge for the program, but spaces are limited. For more information or to apply, visit Or contact the Saint Meinrad Archabbey Office of Monastery Vocations at (812) 357-6318 or
