Roanridge Trust Award Grants are awarded annually for creative models for leadership development, training and ministries in small towns and rural communities across the Episcopal Church.

Although previous recipients are eligible to apply, priority is given to new applications.

Application deadline is October 31.

The 2015 grants will be announced on November 17.

The Roanridge Trust was established by the Cochel family, who originally gave a working farm in Missouri called Roanridge to The Episcopal Church. The interest from the sale of the farm generates the grant funds.
