EES Spot Grants

How will you share God’s love in pandemic?
How is the Spirit showing you new ways to be church?
How will you equip others to be evangelists?

Spot grants are $500 awards, for “on-the-spot” response to evangelism opportunities in pandemic. They are intended to encourage and equip Episcopal leaders-in-formation to follow the Spirit into evangelism opportunities. Grant work will be implemented in conformity to Covid-19 safety guidelines.

Who may apply: Episcopalians in any seminary community or local formation program (ie. Diocesan school, Iona Collaborative). This includes students, faculty, or staff; it also includes the Episcopalian spouse or partner of a student, faculty or staff member. Students (and their spouses) who are within one year of having completed their program of study are also eligible. Contact the Executive Director with any questions concerning eligibility.

How to apply: Applicants should submit the brief application via email. Notification and distribution will be within one month. The Executive Director welcomes questions about your proposal.
