FILL OUT THE ONLINE REFERENCE FORM FOR AN APPLICANT

APPLICATION DETAILS: Please read the instructions on the application carefully. You will be able to save your application as you go, but we encourage you to download the PDF application to view all questions. Please note that we only accept online submissions, not hard copies. Your application must be received before an interview can be arranged. This includes the application form (including short essays), three online references, and all post-secondary transcripts.

REFERENCES: We require 3 references to accompany your application. Please direct each reference to follow the link above and complete the form. References may include professors, college TAs/AIs, work supervisors, volunteer supervisors, campus ministers, pastors, or anyone else who has experience with you in a teaching, supervisory, or mentoring capacity. The depth of their knowledge of you (i.e., their relationship) is more important than their professional title. References should not include co-workers without a supervisory relationship (unless representing a relationship of many years for applicants with 10+ years work experience), classmates, friends, family, or colleagues. References may be contacted for follow up questions by DVUSA staff.

TRANSCRIPTS: Please send all college and university transcript materials to:
Dominican Volunteers USA
1914 S Ashland Ave, Chicago, IL 60608

QUESTIONS: Call 312-226-0919 or email info@dvusa.org with any questions regarding the application process.
