Applications are now being accepted for grant proposals from dioceses, parishes or community college/college/university campuses for new as well as current campus ministries in higher education institutions in the Episcopal Church.
The Episcopal Church Office for Young Adult and Campus Ministries is offering 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 $3000 to $5000.
- A Leadership Grant to establish a new, or restore a dormant, or reenergize a current campus ministry; the grant will range between $20,000 - $30,000 for a two year period. Leadership Grants reflecting the same amount will be considered for future academic years in this triennium.
The grants are for the 2013-2014 academic year.
Deadline for submitting grant proposals is August 15.
