The Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society invites proposals for grants to assist in the start up of new campus ministries or the restart of dormant campus ministries. A total of $95,292 is available this year with $300,000 available in this triennium. The grants are for the 2015-2016 academic year with the monies being dispersed in 2015. Deadline for submitting grant proposals is April 30.
Our hope is that dioceses, parishes and campus ministries, through these grants, can imagine new ways of ministering to those young adults who are traditionally the least likely to seek out an Episcopal campus ministry. It is also an opportunity for leaders in dioceses and congregations to imagine ministry with students who historically have not been a part of our campus ministry communities because they are enrolled in a community college or are working while studying.
There are two categories of grants:
- A series of Campus Ministries grants to provide seed money to assist in the start-up of new, innovative campus ministries or to enhance a current program; grants will range from $3,000 to $5,000.
- A Leadership Grant to establish a new, restore a dormant, or re-energize a current campus ministry; the grant will range between $20,000 and $30,000 and can be used over a two-year period with all monies being dispersed in 2015.
