C. The student is free to select the school of his or her choice which has an accredited course in the field of the various religious services. A check in the amount of the award is sent to the school for the use of that particular student while pursuing the studies in preparation for full-time religious service. The money is issued primarily for tuition, but may be used for books, room, board, or medical aid.

B. The student need only be sponsored by vote of the Chapter. The sponsoring Chapter assumes no financial responsibility by this action, however, the Chapter should have available to them the financial need of the student and some background on the student as to his or her sincerity of achieving their goal in religious leadership. After sponsorship, the Chapter secretary should write to the ESTARL Chairperson requesting an application form.
