Grants and Scholarships
There are many grant and scholarship resources made available to those within the Episcopal Church in Minnesota.
Missional Innovative Partnership Grants
The Episcopal Church in Minnesota invites applications from faith communities for Missional Innovative Partnership grants. Successful applications will demonstrate three elements: Missional (work that is firmly rooted in God’s desire to reconcile the world), Innovative (new imaginings that help address community needs), and Partnership (inviting others into community to build capacity). Successful applications will also demonstrate sustainability: this grant process is intended to initiate self-sustaining Missional Innovative Partnerships.
