Internship & Ambassadors

The Department of College Ministry is accepting applications for both Web-Team Internships and Student Ambassadors. The internships offer $150 per month and the experience will be a nice boost to a student’s resumé! Student Ambassadors are typically, but not always, officers of OCF chapters at their respective college/university. They are Orthodox Christian students in New York or New Jersey who are passionate about carrying out the mission of college ministry.  Information HERE!

The cost of higher education is ever-growing, burdening our recent college graduates and incoming classes with daunting debt.  According to the Federal Department of Education college costs have nearly doubled in the last decade. Our Diocesan Dept. of College Ministry (DOCM) needs your help in getting the word out to our high school and college students about means of financial assistance. DOCM intends to make financial aid information a regular part of assisting our students in an effort to demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ for their physical needs as well as spiritual.

Take a look at some tuition assistance opportunities! >

If you would like to share any financial aid information for future or current college students of the diocese, please contact:
