So, SIP was proposed for a five-year period at Goshen College, and it was granted financial support by Lilly. SIP enables students to participate in a service assignment for 11 weeks with a church-related agency and to receive a $2,000 scholarship, with funding provided in part by home congregations and the host service agencies. <br><br>Since 2001, when the Service Inquiry Program was first implemented, it has sponsored 24 Goshen College students, primarily sophomores and juniors, in summer service assignments. Ninety percent of these students have been affiliated with the Mennonite Church, with their home addresses being mostly in Mennonite communities in Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Without exception, students’ home churches have contributed financially toward the $2,000 SIP scholarships, strengthening the connections between students and their home congregations. </p>
