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.
“We hope that, through these grants, dioceses, parishes and campus ministries can imagine new ways of ministering to those young adults who are traditionally the least likely to seek out an Episcopal campus ministry,” noted the Rev. Michael Angell, Missioner for Young Adult and Campus Ministries. "There are also opportunities for leaders in dioceses and congregations to imagine ministry with students who have not historically 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 $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 2014-2015 academic year.
Deadline for submitting grant proposals is April 11.
